    TextInput with a Watermark?

      I've been really trying to move away from .NET into the flex world. With .NET there is a AJAX control for placing a text watermark on a textbox. This simply gives a sample for the textinput. Example would be a login form with a username textinput that says "User Name", but when the user clicks on the box, that text disappears.

      I know how do create this effect with events, but is there already a control that does this, or do I need to extend the textinput control to add this functionality?

      Any thoughts? Don't want to reinvent the wheel because I don't know all the lingo.
