Get value text from p:inputText javascript

I'm trying something simple, just to get the text value inside a

thought Javascript, but I`m not getting it.
Perhaps it's a different procedure with Primefaces, since if I don't use that, I don't encounter the problem.

My code:

<p:inputText value="any text" widgetVar="youtlink" ></p:inputText>
<p:commandButton value="Search" onclick="loadPlayer();" icon="ui-icon-search" />

<script type="text/javascript">
function loadPlayer() {

I have tried also with JQuery but also no success.

Rendered view:

<form id="editlFrm" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" method="post"
<input id="editlFrm:j_id_7" class="ui-inputfield ui-inputtext ui-widget ui-state-default ui-corner-all"
type="text" value="assd" name="editlFrm:j_id_7" role="textbox" aria-disabled="false"
aria-readonly="false" aria-multiline="false">
<button id="editlFrm:j_id_8" class="ui-button ui-widget ui-state-default ui-corner-all ui-button-text-icon-left"
type="submit" onclick="loadPlayer();;PrimeFaces.ab({source:'editlFrm:j_id_8'});return false;"
name="editlFrm:j_id_8" role="button" aria-disabled="false">

Add id to your <p:inputText

like this

<p:inputText id="someID" value="any text" widgetVar="youtlink" ></p:inputText>

make sure your form got prependId="false"

than access the value like this


if you don't want to add prependId="false" to your form you will have to change the jquery selector from jQuery('#someID').val() to jQuery("[id$='someID']").val()


since your form called editlFrm

try this (make sure to assign someID id to your p:inputText)
