Access and Set Widget Values#

This guide addresses how to access and set widget values.

In addition to other parameters that govern widget behavior and appearance, Widget objects have a value parameter that can be used to access the current value state.

Let’s first create a TextInput widget:

import panel as pn
pn.extension() # for notebook

widget = pn.widgets.TextInput(name='A widget', value='A string')

Now we can programmatically access its value:

A string

We can also use this value parameter to set the widget value:

widget.value = '3'
