jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for pc and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxTree represents a jQuery widget that is used to display a hierarchical collection of items. To display the collection of items, we can populate from ‘UL’ or by using its ‘source’ property.

The val() method is used to set or return the value of selected item. It accepts Single parameter value of String type and returns the String type value.

Syntax:

Set the value of the widget.

$("Selector").jqxTree('val', element);
$("Selector").val(element);

 

Return the value of the widget.

var value = $("Selector").jqxTree('val');
var value = $("Selector").val();
