The Silverlight Suite contains a control called the WatermarkedTextBox control, which I am just starting to use. For some reason, it is not listed as one of the controls, and I can't seem to find any mention of it in documentation or otherwise.

I'd like to know if there is a way to customize the appearance of the watermarked text. By default, it is black/normal text, however I'd like to set it to be Gray/Italic. How would I accomplish this? I just want to change the look of the Watermarked Text, not the text that the user enters.

Thanks

Hi Todd Davis,

This control was removed from the SL toolkit:

You can use the RadMaskedTextBox and set its EmptyContent and EmptyContentTemplate to achieve the same effect.
