How to copy input value from one form field to another?

Hi everyone, essentially I’m just trying to copy the input in a date selector form element into a plain text form field. So once a user enters a date, I want that value to copy to a text field. I’ve tried to get the value of the date field and then set the value of the text field, but it’s not working.

let myValue = $w("#datePicker1").value;

$w("#input5").value = myValue; 

I’m only doing this because when sending an automated email there’s no way to format the date value when using a dynamic form element, so it shows up in the email as YYYY - MM - DD, so I just need to get a properly formatted date element to use in my email automation.

Thanks!

Try this one…

You can use either a Text-Box, or an Input-Field, or a normal Text-Field…

import wixData from 'wix-data';

$w.onReady(()=>{
    $w("#datePicker1").onChange(()=>{
        let myValue = $w("#datePicker1").value;
        console.log(myValue)

        $w("#input5").value = myValue.toString()
        $w("#textBox5").value = myValue.toString()
        $w("#text1").text = myValue.toString()
    })
})

Or a better way …

import wixData from 'wix-data';

$w.onReady(()=>{
    $w("#datePicker1").onChange(()=>{
 let myValue = ($w("#datePicker1").value).toDateString()
        console.log(myValue)

        $w("#input5").value = myValue
        $w("#textBox5").value = myValue
        $w("#text1").text = myValue
    })
})

THANK YOU! You rock.

No problem.

One little fix… —> you don’t need —> import wixData from ‘wix-data’ ;

That was just a COPY-PASTE-FAILURE!

$w.onReady(()=>{
    $w("#datePicker1").onChange(()=>{
 let myValue = ($w("#datePicker1").value).toDateString()
        console.log(myValue)

        $w("#input5").value = myValue
        $w("#textBox5").value = myValue
        $w("#text1").text = myValue
    })
})
