get( id )

The get() function (which can also be used under the alternative name pui.get()) is a shortcut for getElementValue(), trimmed. It is used to retrieve an element’s value by its id and trim the leading and trailing spaces from that value.


  • id or DOM reference to element – identifies the element to retrieve the value from


var value = get("TextBox1"); var value2 = pui.get("TextBox1"); // pui.get() is an alternate name for get()

Example 2:

Suppose you have an element in your HTML page with the id, "header". You could set the background image of the header depending on the value of a particular output field:

if( get("D_8_30") == "M"){ var header = getObj("header"); = 'url("/images/logo.png")'; = "no-repeat"; }
