Placeholders in IE

I am using this script : http://www.morethannothing.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/placeholder.js to get some placeholders into IE. Works a treat for input types of text and password.

But just does'nt seem to load for Text Areas. Does anyone know of a line of code I could add to that, or maybes a little bit of jQuery or JavaScript to execute to get it to load.

Thanks in advance.


instead of $(':text[placeholder],:password[placeholder]') use $(':text[placeholder],:password[placeholder],textarea[placeholder]')


For all inputs and textarea: $('input[placeholder],textarea[placeholder]')


<script type="text/javascript"> if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE") > 0 ) { $(function() { var input = document.createElement("input"); if(('placeholder' in input) == false) { $('[placeholder]').focus(function() { var i = $(this); if(i.val() == i.attr('placeholder')) { i.val('').removeClass('placeholder'); if(i.hasClass('password')) { i.removeClass('password'); this.type='password'; } } }).blur(function() { var i = $(this); if(i.val() == '' || i.val() == i.attr('placeholder')) { if(this.type=='password') { i.addClass('password'); this.type='text'; } i.addClass('placeholder').val(i.attr('placeholder')); } }).blur().parents('form').submit(function() { $(this).find('[placeholder]').each(function() { var i = $(this); if(i.val() == i.attr('placeholder')) i.val(''); }); }); } }); } </script>
