    If you'd like for me to take a look and provide a CSS snippet for use, just post a link to your form for me.

    Hi,
    Thx for the quick response.

    I have a field Name and I display a default message: " e.g. John Smith" , I also use the small script to clear the default value "onfocus".
    I also know how to adapt the CSS for that text field but I don't find the CSS for the default value.

    Maybe there isn't one : )

  4. Ah, yes, in that case the "default value" and whatever you type will share the same style.

    I'll hire some Jquery ninja to have a look to it,
    If I find the solution I'll post it here.

    It sounds like you are using the default value as a placeholder, you may want to look into using a plugin or a script to add the HTML5 placeholder attribute to the inputs.

    Here are two plugins that are in the WordPress plugin repository, if I remember correctly they also hide or remove the field label
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-placeholders/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-auto-placeholders/

    If you only have a few fields a bit of jQuery would accomplish it as well, the following example would add the placeholder Name to field 1 of form 5 for example

    <script>
    jQuery(document).ready(function($){
         $('#input_5_1').attr('placeholder','Name');
    });
    </script>

    If you have more than a few there are some functions you can add to your themes functions file that will add placeholders to the fields settings panel in the form editor.
