  • I think you need remove value from hiddenField field.... not from d .. – Ratan Paul Mar 29 '16 at 6:05
  • i tried this document.getElementById('{!$Component.c:AutoCompleteV2.hiddenfield}').value = ''; – Teja Mar 29 '16 at 6:08
  • but not working – Teja Mar 29 '16 at 6:09
  • Did you try $("input[id$='hiddenField']").val("") ? – Ashwani Mar 29 '16 at 7:48
  • @Ashwani no not working – Teja Mar 29 '16 at 8:49
