long text field's value in javascript

Hy all,

Since I changed a text field to a text area field, I can no longer use the value of the field in a javascript code of a lightning component.
The code simply assigns the value of my field ( called MyTextField in the code bellow) to another one:
myOpportunity.anotherfield__c = myCustomObject.MyTextField__c;

Notice the other field is also a text area and this worked well before we changed the type of myTextField to a text area field.

Thanks for your help

Laurent
