The placeholder text is displayed until a user edits the control, the control is populated with data from a data source, or the control's contents are deleted.

Only one of the parameters is used when you call the SetPlaceholderText method. If more than one parameter is specified, Microsoft Office Word uses the first specified parameter. If all parameters are omitted, the placeholder text is an empty string.

To get the placeholder text of a ContentControl, use the PlaceholderText property. You can also use this property to set the placeholder text to a string.
