    I am setting the property EmptyMessage at design time:

    <telerik:RadTextBox ID="txtSearch" Runat="server" MaxLength="50" Width="100%" EmptyMessage="Enter search criteria here" CssClass="searchTextBox" />


    The text "Enter search criteria here" is displayed when the textbox does not have focus and gets hidden when getting focus. So far behaving as expected. Now, if I press ESC twice while the textbox has focus, the text is displayed and becomes editable. Also, if there is text, pressing ESC once deletes the entered text.

    Hello Teodorico,

    Indeed you are correct for the behavior. Fortunately it has been addressed by our developers and it is already fixed.

    All the best,
