Possible to use placeholder on input type="date"?

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. :slight_smile:

<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
