Placeholder text in Edit control
Hello there,

Can input fields on Dialogs have 'placeholder' text?
By placeholder text I mean this: (as you can see on Forms > Supported controls). It's a lighter, pre-defined text that often shows an example of what you can write on that field.

Thanks a lot!

Clips first character on XP. Add space to avoid it.
Does not work with multiline Edit controls.
