Creating HintText for User Input
Appeon has updated the coming release of Appeon Mobile with a new feature called “HintText”. The HintText displays a value in the TextField and disappears when that TextField has focus (for example, when a user taps it to enter some data using their keyboard). Mobile customers can use this feature to greatly heighten the user experience with their apps.
To learn about the details, refer to the description below:
