Re: text in textarea disappears

Thursday, March 6, 2014

The contents of textarea tag is stored in the value attribute, not the innerHTML, as many seem to think. textcontent (which should be spelled textContent) changes innerHTML, not value.


   code.value = "test";

A javascript application puts a message in a textarea of an html page. After the message has been put in the textarea, the message immediately disapears.

code in javascript application:

if (4===xhr.readystate){
   var code = document.querySelector("textarea")

code in the html file:

<textarea name="textarea" id="textarea" width="1000" style="width:1000px" autocomplete="on"></textarea>

Output in the textarea

But the text "test" immediately disappears.
