Not showing a placeholder for input type=“date” field with HTML5. How to solve it?

To show it, use the following −

<input placeholder = "Date" class = "textbox-n" type = "text" onfocus = "(this.type = 'date')"  id = "date">

You can also go for CSS −

   color: #ffffff;
   content: attr(placeholder) ": ";
input[type="date"]:focus::before {
   content: "" !important;
