Changing Webtextfield CueText Color


Is it possible to change the Webtextfield CueText Color? Or do I have to use alternative such as transparent label as suggested by Mr Michel Bujardet:-

Please advise.

Thank you,


In HTML5 there is no way to change the color of the cue text, so even in JavaScript, I would not know how to change the color of the cue.

You best bet is the method you linked to.

It can be done - but not easily, because you really shouldn’t have to.

If you find you need to change the placeholder text color, you are messing around too much with the text field color.
