Sets or gets a text input's value.

To reset the text box, restoring any placeholder text, set the value property to null or undefined.


  • Changing a text box's value in code does not trigger an onChange event.

  • If an element is connected to a dataset, setting the element's value in code does not set the value of the connected field in the dataset. That means if you use the dataset to perform a submit, the value changed in code is not reflected in the submitted item.

  • To submit the new value using a dataset, set the field's value using the setFieldValue() function before performing the submit.
