Default Blur Text in inputField


How to have a default value in the inputField in Visual Force in a blur format, For e.g. to enter a Number field : the value should be 'Enter a Number'.

As soon as the user clicks to enter the value in the inputField, it should not display anything.

Any advice.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

I figured it out in both the ways : for html and apex vf tags. Please find below the code.

Jquery Plugin was the solution.

 <apex:includeScript value=""/>

I used the above JQuery Plugin.

var j$ = jQuery.noConflict(); j$(document).ready(function(j$){ j$('[id$=temp]').Watermark("Enter your Name"); });

 <apex:inputText value="{!strTemp}" id="temp"/>
