How can I do to let the watermark visible until the user does not enter text?

Currently, the watermark disappears once the control has focus. I like to leave the watermark, even if the control has focus, as the text is null or empty.

Hello Laurent,

I wasn't able to reproduce the problem. I am attaching a simple project. Can you, please check it out and let me know if we are doing something different? It would be great if you can send a simple project, screenshot or a video so it would be easier to reproduce the issue.

I think it was misunderstood, I do not speak the text of RadWatermark, but the WatermarkContent.

Hello senthil,

We have introduced the new property WatermarkBehavior in the 2012 Q3 SP release and seems like you need the "HideOnTextEntered" option. All values of this enum property are:
  • HiddenWhenFocused
  • HideOnClick
  • HideOnTextEntered

It would be great if you can give it a try and let us know if this works for you. Also if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to write us.

Regards,
Georgi
