Project Description

There is a textbox with the text "Keywords" in it.

If the user clicks in the textbox, the contents of it should clear.

Currently I have the above working using JavaScript's onclick event.

This is what I need:

If the user then moves focus away from the textbox without having entered something, the text "Keywords" should re-display in the textbox.


Textbox has "Keywords" written in it.

User click in the textbox and the textbox becomes blank.

The user clicks somewhere else on the screen. The textbox should get re-populated with the text "Keywords".
