  • Last Updated : 27 Apr, 2020

The task is to detect the changes in the textbox content with JavaScript. There are two approaches that are discussed below.

Approach 1: We will use the onchange event in the input element and call a function to see the effect.

  • Example:




    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
      
    <head>
        <title>
            Detect If Textbox content has
            changed using pure JavaScript
        </title>
    </head>
      
    <body style="text-align:center;">
        <h1 style="color:green;"
          GeeksforGeeks 
        </h1>
        <p>
          Change the text of input text
          and click outside of it to see.
        </p>
        <input id="input" name="input"
               onchange="GFG_Fun()" />
        <br>
        <br>
        <script>
            function GFG_Fun() {
                alert('Changed');
            }
        </script>
    </body>
      
    </html>

            Detect If Textbox content has 
            changed using pure JavaScript
