How to get data from JavaScript getelementbyid insert into Html input text? Here is my sample code:

<script type="text/javascript">
var currentUser;
function init(){
    this.clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    this.oWeb = clientContext.get_web();
    currentUser = this.oWeb.get_currentUser();
    this.clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this,this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this,this.onQueryFailed));

function onQuerySucceeded() {
    document.getElementById('userLoginName').innerHTML = ''; 
    document.getElementById('userId').innerHTML = '';
    document.getElementById('userTitle').innerHTML = currentUser.get_title();
    document.getElementById('userEmail').innerHTML = '';

function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
    alert('Request failed. \nError: ' + args.get_message() + '\nStackTrace: ' + args.get_stackTrace());
<div>Current Logged User:
<!--     <span Name="userLoginName"></span>
    <span Name="userId"></span>
    <span Name="userTitle"></span>
    <span Name="userEmail"></span> -->

    <input type="text" name="userLoginName" id="userLoginName">
    <input type="text" name="userId" id="userId">
    <input type="text" name="userTitle" id="userTitle">
    <input type="text" name="userEmail" id="userEmail">
  • Hi, i think you should use document.getElementById('#userTitle').innerHTML if userTitle is a text box with ID "userTitle" Commented Aug 16, 2018 at 7:13
  • In between this question should be asked in Javascript stack exchange Commented Aug 16, 2018 at 7:15

Since you're using textboxes, just change the display means from innerHTML to value in your success block -

function onQuerySucceeded() { 
    document.getElementById('userLoginName').value= currentUser.get_loginName(); 
    document.getElementById('userId').value= currentUser.get_title();; 
    document.getElementById('userTitle').value= currentUser.get_title(); 
    document.getElementById('userEmail').value= currentUser.get_email();

You update/add value attribute of element like below

document.getElementById('userTitle').setAttribute("value", currentUser.get_title());
