In the following code snipplet, I'm creating a "select" button. Clicking the btnSelect button, should set the value of the input field called input-value.

When I click on the button now, nothing happens. No error but now update to the input-value field either.

How can I update the input-value field when the btnSelect is pressed.


The input field looks like this:

<input id="input-value" name="input-value" type="text" value="">

Open in new window

$.ucm.emuseumSearch3(text, function(ucmResponse) {
						// draw the results to the page
						var resultHtml = "";
						var searchResults2 = ucmResponse.ResultSets['objectRS'];
						for (var rowIndex in searchResults2.rows) {
							var row = ucmResponse.getRow("objectRS", rowIndex);
							resultHtml = resultHtml + "<tr><td>" + row.id +
								"</td><td>" + row.title + "</td>" +
								"<td><button id='btnSelect' name='btnSelect' value='"+row.id+"' onclick='document.getElementById(\'input-value\').value=this.value'>Select</button></td></tr>\n";
						}
						$("#searchResults2 tbody").html(resultHtml);
						$("#searchResults2").show();
					});

please share the html code for btnSelect button, or try something like this

<input id="btnSelect" name="btnSelect" type="button" value="Select"/>


$("#btnSelect").bind("click", function(){
   $("#input-value").val("somevalue");
});

Perhaps the nested inner quotes are a problem.
"<td><button id='btnSelect' name='btnSelect' value='"+row.id+"' onclick='document.getElementById(\"input-value\").value=this.value'>Select</button></td></tr>\n";

Why are you using an inline event handler (onclick attribute) anyway?
