Thomas Fuchs has created defaultValueActsAsHint, an implementation of the Input Prompt pattern. I like the idea to have this function, but I use dojo and so I implement it for dojo: function defaultValueActAsHint(elem) {     var element = elem;     element.defaultValue = element.value;     dojo.attr(element, “class”, “hint”);     dojo.connect(elem, “onfocus”, null, function() {         if(element.defaultValue != element.value) return;         dojo.attr(element, “class”, “”);         element.value = ”;     });     dojo.connect(elem, “onblur”, null, function() {         if(element.value != ”) return;         dojo.attr(element, “class”, “hint”);         element.value = element.defaultValue;     }); }
