Hi,

I want to set a value for any input field that is wrapped in a <td class="orderQty selected">

form:
<td><span><input/></span><span><Input THIS INPUT VALUE/></span></td>

the input field's value that I want to change is title="Order Number" with the value of the variable modTest
$('#Target').focus(function(event) {
  
 var mod = event.timeStamp;
 var modTest = mod / 1000;
  

}); 
});

-------------------------------------------------------------

<TD class="orderQty selected" sizcache="7" sizset="43"><SPAN dir=none sizcache="6" sizset="43"><INPUT style="IME-MODE: inactive" id=ctl00_m_g_7279058e_e51a_4bdc_bae0_cf09ae6c9811_ff10_1_ctl00_ctl00_TextField class=ms-input title=OrderQty value=3 size=11 name=ctl00$m$g_7279058e_e51a_4bdc_bae0_cf09ae6c9811$ff10_1$ctl00$ctl00$TextField jQuery1282145205046="1"><BR></SPAN><SPAN dir=none sizcache="6" sizset="44"><INPUT id=ctl00_m_g_7279058e_e51a_4bdc_bae0_cf09ae6c9811_ff12_1_ctl00_ctl00_TextField class=ms-long title="Order Number" value=0 maxLength=255 name=ctl00$m$g_7279058e_e51a_4bdc_bae0_cf09ae6c9811$ff12_1$ctl00$ctl00$TextField jQuery1282145205046="2"><BR></SPAN></TD>

I thought that I would have to search for a td with the class="orderQty" then get it's child that has the title="Order Number" ?

ok,

when I put that code in and do an alert with a value in the input box I get "Undefined"

for some reason it is not working.
$(document).ready(function(){
     
  $(".orderQty span INPUT").change(function(){
  
         if($(this).val() > 0 ) {
        
          $(this).parents("td").addClass("selected");
           var title1 = $("input [title = 'Order Number']").val();
            alert(title1);
        } else {
            $(this).parents("td").removeClass("selected");
        }
});

alert($("[title=Order Number]").val());
