Retrieving the Input Field Value on Click:

Extracting the value of an input field in JavaScript is a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Access the Input Field Value:

Use the input_field.value property to directly obtain the value entered by the user in the input field.


input_field: This refers to the input field itself.

Display the Value in an HTML Element:

To showcase the retrieved value within an HTML element, set its innerHTML property to input_field.value. This dynamically updates the element's content with the input value.


element.innerHTML = input_field.value;


element: This represents the HTML element intended for displaying the input field value. Here i have used innerHTML, instead of this you can use innerText also. (Different between innerText and innerHTML).

input_field: This refers to the input field itself.

See below code for better understanding.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<!-- -->

    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Get the value of input field. |</title>


    <div class="box">
            <input type="text" class="input_field">
            <button class="button">Get The Value</button>
            <div class="output"></div>

        output.innerHTML = "value: " + input_field.value;
