    Default Quick search displays HTML

    I attempted to insert some very basic HTML to alter the quick search box above a grid, so that it reads 'Search all contacts' inside the search box rather than as text beside it, as is the default option in Alpha with a quick search label. However, upon doing so, Alpha seems to display other HTML beside the customized search box. I've attached a screenshot for reference and the code inside my 'Control inline style' field. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Control Inline Style is for adding in-line CSS.

    It doesn't look like there is a way to set the watermark/placeholder text for the quick search control. You have two options:

    1. Set it at run time using JavaScript.

    2. Add a Search Part to the grid, add the contact_name field, and configure the field to have the desired watermark.
