I have the following code:

        $(document).on('change', '#repeaterContainer select', function () {
            if ($(this).attr('targetcontrolid') == "tbShippingInstructions") {
                alert(this.value);
            }
        });

Open in new window


Works great. In trying to set this.value to a textbox, I'm trying this:

       $(document).on('change', '#repeaterContainer select', function () {
            if ($(this).attr('targetcontrolid') == "tbShippingInstructions") {
                var x = this.value;
                $('#tbShippingInstructions').val(x);
            }
        });

Open in new window


This doesn't work. how do I set the value of a text box names tbShippingInstructions to this.value??
