It sounds as if a "cuebanner" is what you need: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEX.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("", 500, 300)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Info", 10, 5)
Local $aInput[6][2] = [[0, "Name"],[0, "Address"],[0, "Home Phone"],[0, "Mobile Phone"],[0, "Date of birth"],[0, "Town"]]
For $i = 0 To UBound($aInput) - 1
    $aInput[$i][0] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, (20 * ($i + 1)), 140, 20)
    GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $EM_SETCUEBANNER, True, $aInput[$i][1])
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit

;Does not work for edit controls with $ES_MULTILINE style.
;In XP, the banner disappears when the edit has focus (cursor in edit)
;In Vista/7 the banner can optionally still appear when the edit has focus (cursor in edit)
;(third parameter = True/False)

Was I right? :)
