get values of text boxes, by class, within a DIV where I know ID of DIV

I have text boxes like this:

<input type="text" class="organization" size="32">

They are buried a few levels down beneath a DIV, such as:

<div id="abc">


In my script, I know the ID of the DIV. I need to get what is typed into the text box by class. There will be only one "organization" class within each DIV.

The text box is not a direct child of the DIV, which is where I'm getting a little confused.

Thank you!

Check the below links hope it helps

or try

$('.organization').keyup(function(e) {
  var $input = $(this);
    var value = $input.val();

Open in new window

That worked, with the exception that I just needed to add val() to the end. Thanks!
