Search Widget - Switching Search Layer Target Removes Placeholder Text

Question asked by strands on Jul 27, 2018

I'm having a small annoying issue with Web AppBuilder right now. I'm putting together an app where users will have about a dozen different layers that they can use the search widget with. I'm putting in specific placeholder texts for each one, as they all search different things.

 

The problem I am running in to is that if you click the drop down arrow to change which layer you want to search on, the placeholder text disappears. This is due to the search tool automatically putting an active cursor into the search box. The only way I can get the placeholder text to show up again is to click on the drop down arrow again.

 

Anyone know of a way to possibly fix this? Maybe not forcing the search box to become active automatically on the back end somehow?

 

Thank you.
