  1. Here, above we show you an example in JavaScript.
  2. First, we here create a basic structure of HTML. For this, we use HTML, head, title, and body with a script tag. We hope you know about the basic structure of HTML and which HTML tag is used for which concept.
  3. Now, when we look inside the body tag. Here, we see some headings tags and a script tag. Heading tag again is a concept of HTML, whereas script relates to JavaScript.
  4. JavaScript is written always inside the script tag. Where the script is a paired tag so it also has a closing tag. Now inside these script tags, we write our JavaScript code.
  5. Here, as we know that in this tutorial we are going to understand how to get input values using JavaScript. So, to get the value of input we create a form with one input field and one button to submit that form. Now, when we click on the button our JavaScript function will be called which gets the input value.
  6. To get the input value inside JavaScript, we create a function that gets called on a button click. Inside this function, we use getelementbyid in document.getelementbyid() to select the input by id, and then we use .value to get the value of that field.
  7. At last, we just alert the value to show that the value will be taken using JavaScript. We hope you understand the above codes with help of these steps easily.
