How to get set read TextBox value using JQuery

Please visit my new Web Site WWW.Codedisplay.com

As we knew that using javascript to read or get or set textbox value is easy but due to JQuery notation novice developers always make mistakes to read textbox value. Here in this article i will show you how one can get set read textbox value or textbox text using JQuery.

To run the example first add a page in your project. Then add three textboxes and one command button to do sum like below:
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="jQuery1.aspx.cs" Inherits="jQuery1" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>How to read TextBox value using JQuery</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtFirst"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtSecond"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:Button runat="server" ID="btn" Text="+" />
        <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtSum"></asp:TextBox>

Now add the below JQuery script which will read two number from txtFirst & txtSecond and set the result into third TextBox:
<script language="javascript">
            $(document).ready(function() {          
                $('#btn').click(function() {
                    // Read First number & 2nd Number from TextBox
                    var $nFirstNum = parseInt($('#txtFirst').val())
                    var $nSecondNum = parseInt($('#txtSecond').val())
                    var $nResult = $nFirstNum+$nSecondNum
                    // Set the result into txtSum TextBox
                    return false;

Now run the page. Hope you will get below interface:
JQuery SUM

Hope now you can read or write value to a TextBox using JQuery easily.

Sorry, looks like what I need to do - but where does the script go? Line numbers are confusing me.
