Ajax Toolkit TextBoxWatermarkExtender Control in ASP.Net

TextBoxWatermark is an ASP.NET AJAX extender that can be attached to an ASP.NET TextBox control to get watermark behavior. When a watermarked TextBox is empty, it displays a message to the user. Once the user has typed some text into the TextBox, the watermarked appearance disappears.

TextBoxWatermark Properties:

TargetControlID - The ID of the TextBox to operate on

Watermark Text - The text to show when the control has no value
