If this method is called on radio buttons, checkboxes, or select options then it would checks, or selects them at the passed value.

Syntax:

Here is the simple syntax to use this method:

selector.val( val ) 

Parameters:

Here is the description of all the parameters used by this method:

  • val: If it is called on <input> but if it is called on <select> with the passed <option> value then passed option would be selected, if it is called on check box or radio box then all the matching check box and radiobox would be checked.

Example:

Following example would set the value attribute of the second input with the value content of the first input:

<html>
<head>
<title>The Selecter Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/jquery/jquery-1.3.2.min.js">
</script>
   
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

   $(document).ready(function() {
      var content = $("input").val();
      $("input").val( content );
   });

</script>
</head>
<body>

<input type="text" value="First Input Box"/><br/>
<input type="text" value="Second Input Box"/>

</body>
</html>

This would generate following result.

<html>
<head>
<title>The Selecter Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/jquery/jquery-1.3.2.min.js">
</script>
   
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

   $(document).ready(function() {
      var content = $("input").val();
      $("input").val( content );
   });

</script>

</head>
<body>

<input type="text" value="First Input Box"/><br/>
<input type="text" value="First Input Box"/>

</body>
