A simple-to-use jQuery plugin that allows you to set & get values of form fields using JSON.

Can be useful in a form builder that generates a dynamic form from JSON or outputs all input values as JSON.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery input-value plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/input-values.jquery.js"></script>

2. Get all values of form fields. This returns a JS object containing all form fields and thier values.

var values = $('form').inputValues();
values = { 
  "textInput":"jqueryscript",
  "numberInput":"",
  "passwordInput":"",
  "rangeInput":"50",
  "colorInput":"#000000",
  "dateInput":"",
  "monthInput":"",
  "timeInput":"",
  "textarea":"",
  "select":"",
  "selectMultiple":[],
  "radio":"",
  "checkbox":"",
  "file":""
  // ...
}

3. Get the value from a specific form field.

var value = $('form').inputValues('textInput');

4. Fill form fields from the data you provide.

$('.form').inputValues({
  "textInput":"jqueryscript",
  "numberInput":"",
  "passwordInput":"",
  "rangeInput":"50",
  "colorInput":"#000000",
  "dateInput":"",
  "monthInput":"",
  "timeInput":"",
  "textarea":"",
  "select":"",
  "selectMultiple":[],
  "radio":"",
  "checkbox":"",
  "file":""
  // ...
});
$('form').inputValues('textInput', 'jqueryscript');

5. Possible plugin options.

$().inputValues.config({

  // the attribute that will be used as the key to match the elements of the form
  attr: 'name', 

  // determine whether to include disable fields
  includeDisabled: false,
  
});
