SfComboBox: How to set a placeholder text?


I am using the SfComboBox control and wanted to set a placeholder text. The overview page shows a placeholder (https://www.syncfusion.com/xamarin-ui-controls/xamarin-combobox) but I can't find the attribute.
Can you tell me how I set it?

Thank you!

Hi Maria,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

We would like to let you know that the `Placeholder` can be set using the Watermark property in SfComboBox as per in below code snippet. 
Code Example [XAML]: 
<combobox:SfComboBox HeightRequest="40"
                                              Watermark="Enter 'A' to filter suggestions" />
We have prepared a simple sample for the same. Please have the sample from the below link,

Please check with the above and let us know if you have any concerns.
