'''//Show Prompt Window and store value var fullName = prompt("What is your full name?");

//Select Input with the id of #fullName var $select = $("<select></select>"); $("#fullName").val($select); //Insert value in to full name input

The val method is actually going to display value it needs the variable that's being passed into it.


So the first is the actual section of the required input element, jQuery is attaching the action to the input by its ID. Then the val() method is being called on it with a value.
