How to access a textbox in a table using ID?

Discussion in 'JavaScript' started by michael meier, Aug 9, 2017.

    I know this is really simple, but I just can't get it. I want to read the contents of an INPUT textbox with id="myTextbox" within a table cell as shown below:

    <table>
    <tr>
    <td>Textbox</td><td><input type="text" id="myTextbox'></input></td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    thanks

    Meanwhile I'd be questioning why it's in a table much less a table data cell, and why the text next to it isn't in a proper LABEL tag with a FOR attribute.
