How to get old value with onchange() event in text box with JavaScript?

To get old value with onchange() event in text box with JavaScript, we can get the old value when the click event is emitted.

For instance, we add an input with

<input type="text" id="test" value="ABS" oldvalue="" />

Then we write

const input = document.querySelector("input");
input.onclick = (e) => {
  e.target.setAttribute("oldvalue", e.target.vakue);
};

input.onchange = (e) => {
  e.target.setAttribute("value", e.target.getAttribute("oldvalue"));
};

to select the input with querySelector.

Then we set input.onclick to a function that gets the input value when we click it.

We get the old input value with e.target.value.

Next we set input.onchange to a function that calls e.target.setAttribute to set the value attribute to the oldvalue attribute’s value we get with getAttribute.
