Assignment using val() behaves differently for textfields than it does for hidden textfields.

Show the original value of a text box


sample output: "Jimmy"

Here's where I see inconsistent behavior. Changing the field using .val() shouldn't modify the original value -- regular text boxes work as expected but hidden fields do not.


If #firstName is <input type="text"/> then this returns "Jimmy" which is correct.

If #firstName is <input type="hidden"/> then this returns "Drew" which is incorrect.
