To get the text node after an HTML element with JavaScript, we can use the nextsubling.nodeValue property to get the text content of the text node after a given element.

For instance, if we have the following HTML:

<input type="checkbox" name='something' value='v1' /> All the world <br />

Then we can get the node value of the element after it by writing:

const text = document.querySelector('input[name="something"]').nextSibling.nodeValue

We select the input with:


Then we use the nextSibling.nodeValue property of it to get the text node value next to it, which is 'All the world' .
