Javascript Question

Jquery .val() dont work properly with Material Design Bootstrap

I'm using Material Design Bootstrap to style and do something nice with the inputs placeholder.

<input id="ConfigName" class="form-control floating-label" placeholder="Name" type="text">

But if I try to add/change some text to the input with jquery it doesn't work correctly.

$('#ConfigName').html("testersres"); // dont work
$('#ConfigName').text("testersres"); // dont work
$('#ConfigName').val("testersres"); //Placeholder and "testersres" is placed on top of each other

I'm using the floating label, second from the top @here

Can someone tell me whats wrong, or how I can fix it?

Here is an image with the problem:

When you are assigning the value, in js you need to remove class empty from the corresponding field.

$('#ConfigName1').removeClass("form-control empty");
