I think you can achieve this by getting the ID of the this field via JavaScript and set its default value as the following :

  • Open you page > add script editor.
  • Add the following code with your control id and its default value



function setbcs() {
     var s = document.getElementById(ID of your control);
     s.value = "new value";
