Presumably on your page you have a form with name myform and a input with the name street1?

yes, i have form with name myform and street1 is there

I don't know what this:
document.myform.street1.value=$address;
   
is producing for you, but if the browser sees something like:
document.myform.street1.value=xyx somestreet name

then you need to quote the value so that it looks like:
document.myform.street1.value="xyx somestreet name"

yeah...
from the velocity tag, i am getting the value of address which i am assignin to the textbox street1.
$address ='someaddress'
so
document.myform.street1.value=$address;
Tomarse111Commented:
Have you tried

document.myform.street1.value='$address';

which is what i think heilo is getting at.
hieloCommented:
>> i am assignin to the textbox street1.
$address ='someaddress'
Yes, but that is just assinging the string 'someaddress' (WITHOUT the apostrophes) to $address. But the javascript needs the quotes. You should be assigning something like:
$address ="'someaddress'"

OR alternatively:
document.myform.street1.value='$address';

Exactly.
