Animate the text in a Text Field

Forums > macOS

Is it possible to fade in the text in a Text Field? For instance, in the example I provide, when the user clicks a button, some text appears in the same text field. But it shows abruptly. I want a smooth fade-in. Is that possible?

  if textField1.stringValue == "" {
          textField1.stringValue = "put some text here"
