Hi Rahul,

The TextBox focus state is the text-editing mode by convention and that is why when you set focus on the control or start typing the watermark content is gone. Of course, if you want to edit its states you can open your project with Microsoft Expression Blend and edit the control template from there by following these steps:
  • select the RadWaterMarkTextBox and right-click on it
  • select 'Edit Template' and then choose 'Edit a Copy'
Now you can see and edit all control visual states.

Here you can find more details on RadWaterMarkTextBox.

Kind regards,

Hi,

I'll see if I can follow your advice to Rahul but his comment does make some sense. We have a login form with two fields and a button, these are the user name and password. The problem is that the username field gets the focus by default so the user might not realise what should be typed. Arguably we should just go back to using labels but I kind of like the watermark text field.

Hello Nick,

We have included this behavior in our plans and most probably it will be included in the SP after Q3.

All the best,
