jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful and optimized framework, platform-independent, and widely supported. The jqxTextArea represents a jQuery textarea widget that is used to insert text content inside the textbox.

Syntax:

Set the placeHolder property.

$('selector').jqxTextArea({ placeHolder: String });

 

Return the placeHolder property.

var placeHolder = $('selector').jqxTextArea('placeHolder ');
