jQuery Check input value length

In this tutorial we will learn how to Check input value length with jQuery. For this we can use jQuery val() Method and length property, the combination of two can give length of value of input element.

jQuery val() Method

jQuery val() Method sets or returns the value of the HTML input elements.

val() Method is used to get value from all form elements. In this example it is used to read the value of input tag.

length property

length property returns the number of elements in the jQuery object or number of characters in a string.

In this example length property is used to get the length of value of input element.


HTML Code is given below, in this code we have one input tag and one button tag.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>jQuery Check input value length</title>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js"></script>        
<input type='text' id="input">
<button id="btn">Check Length</button>    
<script src="script.js"></script>    

JQuery Code

   var value = $('#input').val();
   var length = value.length;
