Text masking is an alternative for us to display information what type of content user must input to our forms, as usual jQuery make our life easier, to implement that we just need to create the script that read user actions (focusing or bluring the input), read its value then decide to empty the input value or refill with its default value.

 

$('input').focus(function() {
 
 if($(this).val() == "Enter your email here")
  $(this).val('');
 
}).blur(function() {
 
 if($(this).val() == "")
  $(this).val('Enter your email here');
 
});

 

 

 

we can manipulate them with animation, so if the user give a focus on the input we’ll fading out the text mask and vice versa. To implement that, we must add a label element before the input element and make its position to absolute. Take a look at following script :

 

HTML

 

 

<form>
 <label class="username-label" for="username">Username</label>
 <input type="text" name="username" class="username" />
 <label class="password-label" for="password">Password</label>
 <input type="password" name="password" class="password" />
</form>

 

 

CSS

 

 

.username-label, .password-label {
 position: absolute;
 margin: 9px 9px 9px 12px;
}

 

 

 JavaScript

 

 

$('.username-label, .password-label').animate({ opacity: "0.4" })
 .click(function() {
  var thisFor = $(this).attr('for');
  $('.'+thisFor).focus();
});
 
$('.username').focus(function() {
 
 $('.username-label').animate({ opacity: "0" }, "fast");
 
  if($(this).val() == "username")
   $(this).val() == "";
 
 }).blur(function() {
 
  if($(this).val() == "") {
   $(this).val() == "username";
   $('.username-label').animate({ opacity: "0.4" }, "fast");
  }
 });
 
$('.password').focus(function() {
 
 $('.password-label').animate({ opacity: "0" }, "fast");
 
  if($(this).val() == "password") {
   $(this).val() == "";
  }
 }).blur(function() {
 
  if($(this).val() == "") {
   $(this).val() == "password";
   $('.password-label').animate({ opacity: "0.4" }, "fast");
  }
});

 

 

If we can use fade in or fade out animation, then we can play with another animation such as slide to the left or right, once again it’s based on our need. Ok, that’s it
