How to Change the Text of a Button using jQuery

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the jQuery prop() and html() Methods

You can simply use the jQuery prop() method to change the text of the buttons built using the HTML <input> element, whereas to change the text of the buttons which are created using the <button> element you can use the html() method.

The jQuery code in the following example will change the button text on document ready:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>jQuery Change Button Text</title>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
    // Change text of input button
    $("#myInput").prop("value", "Input New Text");
    
    // Change text of button element
    $("#myButton").html("Button New Text");
});
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <input type="button" id="myInput" value="Input Text">
    <button type="button" id="myButton">Button Text</button>
</body>
</html>
