I'm not seeing a clear answer on this after browsing through other answers. Closest I found was this, but doesn't work after fiddling with it for a while. I already have some jquery filling in textboxes, would like to keep going with that.

var urlValue = new SP.FieldUrlValue();


urlValue.set_description("test link");

myItem.set_item("TestURL", urlValue);

also tried playing with this:

$("input[title='Item Path']").eq(1).val("link description");

$('input[id^="ItemPath"]').eq(1).val('link description');

1 Answer 1


this works:


$("input[id^='testlink']").eq(1).val("description here");
