Label Overlapping Text Input Blocks Selecting Text Input

I have a screenshot below of what I am trying to do. The problem is, is that the "Example..." text makes it so I can't click on the actual text input box. Is there a way to prevent this from happening, or perhaps a better way of implementing this idea?

I appreciate any help you can give.

Hi @Alerts_OM_USA,

 

Would it be possible to re-size the Label control?

Or place it at another position besides the TextInput control?

 

In addition to add the Label control, you may take a try to modify the Default property of the TextInput control.

For example, if the Example would only needed when submitting new records, then we could change the Default property of the TextInput control with the code below:

If(EditForm1.Mode=New,"Example: 204 Marketing",Parent.Default)

Doing this would have the TextInput Box to display the Example Text when users are trying to create a new record.

For more information about form control, check:

Yeah I considered putting it as the default text, but in that case I'd rather just move the example case down or up which is what I have done, unless there is a solution to this problem.
