GUICtrlCreateInput("description that is erased when you type", 10, 5, 300, 20)
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>


    GUICreate(" My GUI input acceptfile", 320, 120, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 160, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
    Local $idFile = GUICtrlCreateInput("test1", 10, 5, 300, 20)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
    GUICtrlCreateInput("test2", 10, 35, 300, 20) ; will not accept drag&drop files
    Local $idBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 40, 75, 60, 20)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $idBtn
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

in my case test2 will not be erased until i manually select the word "test2" 

i'am looking for something that clear the input when i press anywhere with the mouse inside the inputbox

The best way to do it is the way that Windows does it natively using the EM_SETCUEBANNER parameter for the input control.

Local $idFile = GUICtrlCreateInput('', 11, 11, 125, 23)
GUICtrlSendMsg($idFile , $EM_SETCUEBANNER, True, "Username")

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

jguinch your code didn't work for me, I don't know why  (XP ?)

I had to do it like this

#Include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>

GUICreate("gui", 200, 45)
Local $idFile = GUICtrlCreateInput('this is a test', 10, 10, 180, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNA)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "_WM_COMMAND")

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Func _WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
  Local Static $begin = 1
  If $begin and (BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFFF) = $idFile) Then
    GuiCtrlSetData($idFile, "")
    $begin = 0
  EndIf
 Return 'GUI_RUNDEFMSG'
EndFunc
