<div class="modal-footer">
<a href=''><button type="button" class="btn btn-info">View</button></a>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>

Answer Source

Add a id to =>

<a id="link" href=''><button type="button" class="btn btn-info">View</button></a>

This should work :

$(document).ready(function() {

    $("#childNames").on('change', function () {

                var ref = document.getElementById("childNames").value;
                $('#link').attr('href', ref);
