  • Why are not you using the onchange handler? Commented Nov 11, 2020 at 8:25
  • Thanks for the reply Yes..that is possible, Is there a way of queryselector syntex to capture the specific input value. That way the code can be reduced.

You are trying to access the field value on button click using querySelector, but you cannot use name attribute to identify a particular lightning input field inside querySelector. You can make use of dataset attribute to do so.

Instead of name, change it to data-name in input markup definition.

    <div class="slds-col">
        <lightning-input type="number" data-name="temp"  label="Enter a Temperature" ></lightning-input>
    <div class="slds-col btnMargin">
        <lightning-button variant="brand" label="Check" title="Check" onclick={handleLusmSearch} class=""></lightning-button>

In JS side, You can access it like:-

    const temp = this.template.querySelector('lightning-input[data-name="temp"]').value;

If you want to get the field value on change of field value, you can make use of onchange handler. The sample code would be:-


<lightning-input name="numberField" type="number" onchange={handleChange} label="Enter a number"></lightning-input>
<lightning-input name="checkboxField" type="checkbox" onchange={handleChange} label="Basic option"></lightning-input>


        var value;
        if(event.target.type === 'checkbox' || event.target.type === 'checkbox-button' || event.target.type === 'toggle'){
            value = event.target.checked;
            value = event.target.value;
        if(event.target.name === 'numberField'){
            this.numberFieldValue = value;
        }else if(event.target.name === 'checkboxField'){
            this.checkBoxFieldValue = value;
  • Thank you for the help.
