Why doesn't the text input box change?

I get the console logs but the text input box does not change for me. What's wrong?

var button = document.getElementById('action');
var input = document.getElementById('text_field');

button.addEventListener('click', function () {
    console.log('clicked');
});

button.addEventListener('click', function () {
    console.log('Other click');
    input.setAttribute('value', 'Hello World');
});

Strange, works for me now too. Maybe my browser just needed to be reloaded. Thanks.

No worries. Usually the case if you expect something to work its either a typo or the browser needs a refresh :)
