comment How to add input prompts to SharePoint 2013 Form Fields
To some degree, it's possible to do the same thing in a custom designed form by placing SharePoint:FieldDescription controls immediately after the FormField controls, but the jquery code also works on date fields (which you don't want it to tinker with) and such, creating something of a mess of the form.

Only on out-of-box edit forms.

It doesn't work. The expression <b>$(this).parent().next().html()</b> is undefined. And looking at the generated markup, the code would have to come from the server - how else could it pick up the description field (which isn't otherwise rendered)?

Amal, you're rehashing the Kyle Schaeffer code I'm already using (see "here" above). The prompt appears and disappears appropriately, but it uses the NAME of the field rather than its DESCRIPTION

comment Is there a way to programmatically choose an EditForm in an event receiver?
The edit form appears as a modal dialog. Does that make a difference?

comment Unable to apply JSLink to the field
Nadeem, I think I'm missing something here. Why does the definition (or syntax) preclude modifying the look and feel of a TaxonomyField?

Waqas, it is indeed a bug - Microsoft confirmed it to me today. Thanks very much for posting this and the link.
