Hi, I have created an additional field in Partner module to hold Post Office Box. However the field does not indicate if it expects PO Box so I want to show grayed PO Box in the field. any idea how I can do it? Thanks in advance. Momi

as per my understand do you want to make this field compulsory ?

in the main Partner information form under address module, I have added a field for Post Office Box. However in the address module the fields do not differentiate if it is for street address or it is for PO Box, so to make it clear to the user, I wish to display "PO Box" in the field so they know that here they have to enter PO Box. It is just like ZIP, Country, website or Phone field where a grayed out +32 81 81 37 00 is displayed. I wish to have something similar in the PO Box filed "i.e. PO Box" when anything is typed it will disappear and value will be recorded. :)
