jQuery Set Content and Attributes

  1. text() – Sets or returns the text content of selected elements
  2. html() – Sets or returns the content of selected elements (including HTML markup)
  3. val() – Sets or returns the value of form fields

$(“#test1”).text(“Hello world!”);
$(“#test2”).html(“<b>Hello world!</b>”);
$(“#test3”).val(“Dolly Duck”);

The jQuery attr() method is also used to set/change attribute values.

$(“#w3s”).attr(“href”, “http://www.w3schools.com/jquery&#8221;);

“href” : “http://www.w3schools.com/jquery&#8221;,
“title” : “W3Schools jQuery Tutorial”
