placeholder is an attribute, not a tag. It can be used together with the attribute
text of the
input tag to create a text to visualize when the input box is empty.
<input type=text placeholder="This is a placeholder text">
If you’re stuck check for these issues:
- you should add the
placeholderattribute to the
inputtag already present in the code without removing anything; if by accident you removed or modified something remember that you can restart with a clean code by clicking
reset all codebutton
- the syntax is the same of every attribute:
<tag attributeName="attributeValue" >and the value to insert is indicated by the challenge’s instructions (check for typos).
