Get value of type=text which is inside table

I want to get the value inside a textfield. The textField is inside a

<td>
in a table. When I click the button I want the text which is inside a textfield, with the lables it works perfect.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Bind Click Event to Dynamically added Elements</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){

$('#main').on("click", 'input[type="button"]', function () {
var customerId = $(this).parent().siblings('td:eq(2)').text();
$('#texti').text(customerId);
});

});


</script>
</head>
<body>
<button>Add new list item</button>
<p>Click the above button to dynamically add new list items. You can remove it later.</p>
<table id="main">
<tr>
<td>list item 1 </td>
<td><input type='text' name='textN' id='textN' value='asdf'/></td>
<td>list item 3 </td>
<td ><input type='button' value='Update' name ='updateBox' id='updateBox' /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>list item 4</td>
<td><input type='text' name='textN' id='textN' value='asdf2'/></td>
<td>list item 6</td>
<td ><input type='button' value='Update' name ='updateBox' id='updateBox' /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>list item 7</td>
<td><input type='text' name='textN' id='textN' value='asdf3'/></td>
<td>list item 9</td>
<td ><input type='button' value='Update' name ='updateBox' id='updateBox' /></td>
</tr>
</table>
<a name="texti" id="texti"> x </a>
</body>
</html>


It gives me a blank variable. how to fix?

Answer

Only thing you need is to find input from current row and get it's value using .val().

Here is solution:jsfiddle

 $('#main').on("click", 'input[type="button"]', function () {
            var customerId = $(this).parent().siblings('td:eq(1)').find('input').val();
            $('#texti').text(customerId);
 });
