Use the jQuery val() Method

You can simply use the val() method to set the value of a textarea dynamically using jQuery.

Let's try out the following example to understand how it basically works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Set Textarea Value</title>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        var textContent = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.";
        $("button").click(function(){
            $("#myTextarea").val(textContent);
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <textarea id="myTextarea" rows="3" cols="50"></textarea>
    <br>
    <button type="button">Set Textarea Value</button>
</body> 
</html>
