I am creating some kind of application.
You should be able to put in the title, the description etc.
And then the inserted text should convert to a particulair style configured in my css.

Question: How do i make an input field. Enter the text press enter and then the text wil be posted between the h3 tags.

What I have tried:

I have created a prompt through javascript wich does what i want. but since the prompt is pretty inconveniant i want to do something else. just an input type text field and then after you press and the text get inserted and converted through CSS.
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Adwords Applicatie</title>
    <script src=""></script>

  <!-- beginning of style -->

    #input1 {
      border:solid black 1px;


    h3 {
      font-family: arial,sans-serif;
      text-align: left;
      cursor: pointer;

    p {
      color:rgb(0, 102, 33);
      font-size: 14px;
      font-style: normal;
      height: auto;
      width: auto;
      text-align: left;
      display: block;
      font-weight: 400px;
      line-height: 16px;
      padding: 0px;
      font-family: arial,sans-serif;
      white-space: nowrap;
      cursor: pointer;


    .text {
    color:rgb(84, 84, 84);
    font-size: 13px;
    font-family: arial,sans-serif;
    text-align: left;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    font-weight: 400;
    line-height: 18.2px;
    display: inline;

Solution 1

You could use a <textarea> or <input> element. You have to give it an identity so you can retrieve it's value via javaScript. Although normally used in <form>'s, they don't have to be used in that context.

You then need, as well, to decide what event will trigger moving the text. A button with an onclick event [just as inconvenient as input()], onblur ? The latter could be annoying, but it does save the button click.

Solution 2

in javascript:
triggered by a click event on a button which should be in an event handler, not inline.

If you want it really dynamic they you could use the keyup event on the input for the eventhandler, and then it would update with each key stroke.
