Add Legend in a field

Hello community, I am working with a portal in power apps. 

I would like to put a legend, or a message in the Delivery Date field so that the user knows the instructions to establish a date. Because I want to show a legend that says: Please enter a date greater than two days from the current one.




Can someone help me here? 

I would appreciate it guys

It is not there out-of-the-box, but you can set it via JavaScript (JQuery) by setting the "placeholder" attribute of the field 


$(document).ready(function () {
 $("#field_name").attr("placeholder", "the palceholder text to display" );



Hi @Fubar your idea is good. However, it does not work in those fields that are date type.

You can set placeholder on a date field, but you probably are not using the correct fieldname - Date fields are more complex than normal fields and comprise several sets of tags (with slightly different Id's)

Try adding  _datepicker_description  to the end of the fieldname




@Fubar, effectively using the following script I was able to show the placeholder in this type of data.


$(document).ready(function () {
 $("#crb57_fechadeentrega_datepicker_description").attr("placeholder", "Please enter a date greater than two days from the current one" );
