How do you flush the search bar

I'd like to have a text ie: search written inside the search field and I would like this text to disapear when the search field gets the focus.

I tried this code but it does'nt work even with other events like click any ideas?

mySearch.addEventListener('focus', function(e)
    e.value=' ';

  • I finally solved that by myself here's how the event argument is useless

    mySearch.addEventListener('focus', function(e)
        mySearch.value=' ';

    • you could use e.source.value = '';

      The e.source value is useful ;-)
