Get the value with jQuery

Hi, I tried to do this with jQuery. The eventhandler is working, but the console only logs "undefined". If I log "$input" and check the value in the console, it show's the right value.

const $form = $("#registrar"); const $input = $("form input");

$form.submit((e) => { e.preventDefault(); console.log($input.value); });

what does your html look like?

Use jQuery's val method to get or set the value of an input.
