How do I add a value that I click on in a listbox (created in HTML) to a textbox in a form (<FORM></FORM>).

The listbox is not in the <FORM></FORM> tags.

How?????

Or with Javascript, in case Webwoman sees this question, and says VBScript is for the kids.

<script language=javascript>
function SetTextbox()
{     window.document.forms(0).txtBox.value = select1.options(select1.selectedIndex).text;
}
</script>
