Python Gtk.Entry placeholder text

0 votes
I have a login-window with two gtk.Entry objects. The first one is for username and the second one is for password. How to add some Ghosttext to the Entry, so there is written "Username" in the Entry but if you click inside the text, it dissapears?

Can anyone help me with this?

Starting with Gtk+ 3.2 it's possible to set placeholder text.

entry = Gtk.Entry()
entry.set_placeholder_text("I am a placeholder")
