placeholderpatch is a jQuery plugin that enables Older Browsers to support HTML5 Placeholder attribute. The placeholder is an useful and user-friendly attribute introduced in HTML5 that shows preset text in a text field until the field is focused on, then hides the text. 

How to use it:

1. Include the latest jQuery library and placeholderpatch.js in the head section

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="jquery.placeholderpatch.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

2. Create a input field with a ID of 'demo'

<input type="text" id="demo" placeholder="jQueryScript.Net" />

3. Then call the plugin

<script type="text/javascript">

Change log:

v1.2.0 (2013-11-25)

  • The placeholder text must now be provided by only by the placeholder attribute
  • The patch is now only applied if placeholder attributes are not supported already by the browser
