Re: Default value in empty TextBox

You can try the attribute placeholder.
getElement().setPropertyString("placeholder", "default value")

Is there anything built into GWT to display a value in a TextBox if
the field is emtpy?  This value would disappear once the user clicked
in the field and started typing.  I have seen this functionality on
several Google web pages (i.e. the Contacts page in GMail) but I can't
find anything in the documentation or samples about it.
