Show pound (£) sign in input field by JavaScript or jQuery

Show pound sign in input field by JavaScript or jQuery

Pound sign in input field by JavaScript or jQuery, if anyone has tried pound (£) sign (or any special character) in any input fields by JavaScript or jQuery, then you know it is not straight forward.

 

If we write code like this,

//JavaScript
document.getElementById('input_filed_id').value = '£100';

//jQuery
$('input_field_id_OR_class').val('£100');

It'll display some question mark(unrecognized character) instead of the pound sign.

So we need to put character's Unicode to display it properly. In this case, the code should look like this:

//JavaScript
document.getElementById('input_filed_id').value = '\u00A3100';

//jQuery
$('input_field_id_OR_class').val('\u00A3100');

where \u00A3 is the character code of £

Thank you and have nice day
