How to get text from a drop down selection into a text field


Recommended Posts



This is just a quickie, at the moment I can get a numeric value driven by the dropdown selection into a text box using this code in the drop down:


<select name="skillsListDropDown" onchange="document.skillsForm.skillField.value=this.choice">


and this code for the text field:


<input name="skillField" type="text" size="25">


...but what I actually want is to get the text from the selected drop down item.


You can see the form here:  http://www.spencercarpenter.co.uk/portfolioAppFiles/simpleForm.php it is the Manage Skills List section.


Thanks in advance.
