What would you like to do?
Hide labels behind inputs on Bootstrap's horizontal forms, until the user starts to fill them up and it's then sliding on. Preferably for inputs with placeholders.
(function ($) {
'use strict';
$.fn.bsPeekabooLabel = function () {
var input = $(this),
control = input.closest('[class*="col-"]'),
label = control.siblings('.control-label'),
show = false,
place = function (d) {
var m;
if ($(control).css('float') === 'left') {
m = '0 0 0 ' + label.outerWidth() + 'px';
label.animate({ margin: show ? 0 : m, opacity: show ? 1 : 0 }, d);
control.animate({ margin: m }, d);
} else {
label.animate({ margin: 0, opacity: 1 }, d);
control.animate({ margin: show ? label.outerHeight() + 'px 0 0' : 0 }, d);
}
};
label.css({ position: 'absolute' });
place(0);
input.keyup(function () {
if (show === !input.val()) {
show = !show;
place(400);
}
});
$(window).resize(function () { place(0); });
};
}(jQuery));

$('.form-control[placeholder]', '.form-horizontal').each(function () {
    $(this).bsPeekabooLabel();
});
