I am trying to make a placeholder text in an input field, but having a hard time making this work. I tried within the js of the capture for document.getElementsByName("toEmail")[0].placeholder = "Email*"; but it doesn't get set. Any ideas?


Try inserting the following before the closing </form> tag when editing the Smart Capture block's HTML:

var formInputToEmail = document.getElementsByName('toEmail');
var placeholderToEmail = document.createAttribute('placeholder');
placeholderToEmail.value = 'Email*';

The above code snippet assumes the following:

  • The name attribute value of your input field is exactly "toEmail" (JavaScript is case-sensitive)
  • "toEmail" is unique (i.e., no other input fields have this attribute value for name)
