This is starting to get on my nerves. I’m trying to set the value of text inputs on a form so I can submit it to a database. I’ve tried using .val() and re-rendering the tag completely. I use firebug to debug code, and while it shows the proper information in there, if I view the source code, the value is empty.
from what I’ve read, attrib is supposed to change the value and val puts in the box. It shows on the screen, but not in the physical code. So when I go to submit it, I get a bunch of empty fields and lots of errors because of that.
Is there something i’m doing wrong here?
