Clear Pre-Populated Data on Click

  1. A lot of sites wthat have forms with pre-populated forms will have the data cleat when you click the field. So that the user doesn't have to backspace out all the data, seems a useful feature. Might be a nice one for Gravity Forms.

  2. Yep. It's already on the list for a future release.

    You can do this now if you'd like with some jQuery added to your template. Here's an example.

  3. Has this been done? I assume 2 years on from this post then it would be implemented, if so how?

  4. This has not been added to Gravity Forms. The clearit method detailed above will work, or there was a 3rd party add-on released to add this functionality:
