Create an HTML file and add the following template to the HTML file.

  • html
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
    
    <html>
    
    	<head>
    
    		<title>Password</title>
    
    		<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0,maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />
    
    		<link href="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/17.3.0.9/js/mobile/ej.mobile.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    
    		<script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jquery-3.0.0.min.js"></script>
    
    		<script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/17.3.0.9/js/mobile/ej.mobile.all.min.js"></script>
    
    	</head>
    
    	<body>
    
    	<div id="header" data-role="ejmheader" data-ej-position="normal" data-ej-title="Login"></div>
    
    		<div id="sample" class="sample">
    
    			<div class="container">
    
    				<form id="loginForm">
    
    					<label>
    
    						User Name
    
    					</label>
    
    					<div>
    
    						<input id="userName" name="userName" data-role="ejmtextbox" data-ej-watermarktext="User Name" />                    
    
    					</div>
    
    					<label>
    
    						Password
    
    					</label>
    
    					<!-- Add Password elements here -->
    
    					<div class="submit">
    
    						<input id="submit" name="submit" data-role="ejmbutton" data-ej-text="Login" type="button" />
    
    					</div>
    
    				</form>
    
    			</div>
    
    		</div>
    
    		<div id="scrollPanel" data-role="ejmscrollpanel" data-ej-target="sample"></div>
    
    	</body>
    
    </html>

    To render the Password control, you can set “ejmpassword” to the data-role attribute for the specific input element as follows.                                  

  • html
  • <!-- Password elements -->
    
    <div>
    
    	<input name="password" id="password" data-role="ejmpassword" />
    
    </div>

     Add the following styles to show the Password control in an order.

  • css
  • .error {
    
    	color: red;
    
    }
    
    .sample {
    
    	display: table;
    
    	width: 100%;
    
    }
    
    .submit {
    
    	text-align: center;
    
    }
    
    form {
    
    	padding: 15px;
    
    }
    
    .container {
    
    	display: table-cell;
    
    	vertical-align: middle;
    
    }

    Run the above code example and you can see the following output.

    Set watermark text

    The watermark text is usually a short hint that describes the expected value of the input field. This can be achieved by using the “data-ej-watermarktext” attribute.

  • html
  • <input name="password" id="password" data-role="ejmpassword" data-ej-watermarktext="Password" />

    Run the above code example and you can see the following output.
