Node.js Question

How to get textbox value in node.js file?

This is my html code:

<form id="fileupload" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

<div class="row fileupload-buttonbar">
<textarea name="txtFolderName" rows="1"></textarea>
<button type="create" class="btn btn-primary start">
<i class="glyphicon glyphicon-upload"></i>
<span>Create Folder</span>

When I click the "Create Folder" button, I will do some function based on the textbox value. How to get the textbox value to the node.js file during POST method?


For express you can use bodyParser() middleware ( and get submited fields from req.body.

var express    = require('express');
var bodyParser = require('body-parser');

var app = express();
app.use(bodyParser());'/uploaded',function(req, res, next){
    var txt_folder_name = req.body.txtFolderName;
