DOM scripting on a <form>. Cannot get the text to display on text field (dog_name) when image is clicked.

I want the user to click on an image(photo of my dog) and take the name of that image (Jack) and place in in the name field. The name field in in a <form>.

// JS var dogFaceTwo = document.getElementById("imageTwo"); var onClickTwo = function () { document.getElementById("messageTwo").textContent += "Ellie"; } dogFaceTwo.addEventListener("click", onClickTwo);

//HTML <form= action="#" method="post" id="agilityForm" class="agilityForm"> <fieldset> <legend>Agility Point Tracker</legend>

        <input type="image" id="image" alt="dogPhoto" width=50 height=50 src="IMG_0033.jpg"><br>
        <div id="message"></div>

        <input type="image" id="imageTwo" alt="dogPhotoTwo" width=50 height=50 src="IMG_4852.jpg"><br>
        <div id="messageTwo"></div><br>
        <label for="dog_name" class="required">Dog Name:</label>
        <input type="text" autofocus dog_name="dog_name" id="dog_name" required
            title="Please enter your dog's name"> <br>

You could try adding this to your current code:

var dogImageElement = document.querySelector('#image');

dogImageElement.addEventListener('click', function() {
  var inputTextElement = document.querySelector('#dog_name');
  inputTextElement.value = 'Jack';

The code is working, but it's designed to append the name "Ellie" into the div "messageTwo" below the image.

To put the name "Jack" into the form entry box "dog_name" you could do this instead:

  document.getElementById("dog_name").value = "Jack";
