@mdowton (or anyone else) - in 3*, any idea how you'd go about it with the

TextField::create("Address", "Street Address")

style construction?

Is it possible to set the placeholder text in the template rather than in the PHP code?

There is probably a way, but why would you need to do this? I am sure the php option is the conventional solution.
