Placeholder Color Change using CSS


placeholder color change

Hello Friends. How are you? Today we will learn how to change the color of the default placeholder of the input of the form according to our wish. We have already shared many front-end-related source codes in this blog. If you have time, you can take a look at them.

However, we see the form on more or less all the websites. It could be a login form, a registration form, or something else. The placeholder text in those forms has a specific color. If you want, you can easily change the color using simple CSS. However, when doing this, you need to keep in mind the browser compatibility. 

First, We have created a simple form for this project. I have used two input elements in that. One is email and, the other is password. If you take a look at the picture above, you will understand that the color of the placeholder has been changed to darkorange color.

First, we styled the form using some basic CSS. In the next step, we have selected the placeholder selector so that we can set a color. Then for browser compatibility, I have given the same color to other pseudo-elements so that all browsers support it.
