i spoke to ben about this before, and i thought i would try and have a go at it myself.
i currently have a product search box on my shop which is made up of the following HTML.
<form action="index.asp?function=SEARCH" method="post">
<input name="search" type="text" value="Type Search Criteria + Enter" size="25" class="searchbox" />
as you can see i have it so that in the contents of the search box it says "Type Search Criteria + Enter" but the problem is the user has to delete all whats in the box before they type anything in
what i would like to happen is that when someone clicks in the search box it automaticly deletes "Type Search Criteria + Enter" allowing them to enter a product without having to delete anything.
also how hard is it to get the background colour of the search box to change?
Thanks in advance
