placeholder String (default: "")

The hint displayed by the widget when it is empty. Not set by default.

Example - specify placeholder

<input id="autocomplete" />
<script>
$("#autocomplete").kendoAutoComplete({
  placeholder: "Enter value ..."
});
</script>

The Kendo UI AutoComplete widget could also use the value of the placeholder HTML attribute as hint.

Example - use the placeholder HTML attribute

<input id="autocomplete" placeholder="Enter value..." />
<script>
$("#autocomplete").kendoAutoComplete();
</script>
