I have a couple textboxes that have values initially i.e. 'type text here' and when the user clicks or navigates to the textbox I want the text to disappear.  The textboxes are asp.net textboxes and are contained in a masterpage as well as ascx files.  I tried to use this code:

<script type="JavaScript">
    function clearText(boxId)
    {
      txtBox = document.getElementById(boxId);
      txtBox.value = "";
    }
</script>

Codebehind:
serviceTB.Attributes.Add("onfocus", "clearText(serviceTB);")

But this is not working as I keep getting object expected errors.  Any way to accomplish this in .net 2.0 when using masterpage?
