I use placeholders on all the other inputs in my form, would look better if I was able to do this with the "date" input aswell. I have tried but it doesnt seem to work... but is there any "hax" around this?
thanks in advance.
What about just using the value attribute? That's not a hack at all.
<input type="date" value="2013-09-02">
Well but then you do want to add in some validation so people don't accidentally send the placeholder data
