Placeholder prompt on Windows is darker text than in OSX

On OSX the prompt that is in text fields is a light gray by default. On Win the placeholder prompt is dark gray until you put the cursor in the text field. Then it’s the same light gray as on OSX.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Add a text input to a form
  • Set the placeholder property to any value

On Windows the text is dark gray until it gains focus. On Mac it’s light gray with or without focus.

It is the same (light gray) on both

Could you please attach your screenshots of your observations there?

On Mac:


I didn’t notice it at first but the more text inputs there are on a form the darker it looks.

@kerrishotts would this be considered something we can fix or is this an expected Windows behavior?
