I'm writing a booking room system for a school.
I have x2 textboxes time_start and time_finish.

I have a drop-down box which says (Period 1, Period 2, etc...)

I want to pick a period from the drop-down box, I.e: Period 1 (08:40-09:40) and then to have it populate the two textboxes with time_start (08:40) and time_finish (09:40).

Many Thanks

To do this you'll need to use javascript or have the form submitted after the user selects from the drop down box.

The javascript would put all options into an array and then use the onchange="" parameter of the drop down box to call a function which would populate the text boxes.

The other option would require the user to click on submit each time they select a new period.

Of the two the javascript would be the generally more user friendly but may carry accessiblity issues.

If you're interested in the javascript solution just ask and i can post a skeletal concept of if.
