i found the answer
 <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlStatus" runat="server" AutoPostBack="false" OnChange="SetDateFields()">

<script type="text/javascript">
function SetDateFields()
{
var statusList = document.getElementById('<%=ddlStatus.ClientID %>');
var selectedStatus = statusList.options[statusList.selectedIndex].text;
  var xx = document.aspnetForm.rent_date.value;
document.aspnetForm.rent_date.value=selectedStatus;


//alert('selected status is : ' + selectedStatus);
}
</script>

in the page load

ddlStatus.Attributes.Add("onchange", "javascript:SetDateFields()");

To do this in code behind you need to set the AutoPostback property of the DropDownList to true.
This is not the most elegant solution, however, as it will post the page back to the server. A better solution would be to use client side scripting to do the same thing.

As a follow-up to my last post, the way to add JavaScript to the aspx DropDownList control is to register its onclick event when the page loads. This adds the client-side script when the user requests the page.
In the attached code, you see that you can use the ClientID property of both controls to get the ID given to the controls by the server when the page is served up.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		this.select_week.Attributes.Add("onclick", 
				String.Format("{0}.value = {1}.value;", this.rent_date.ClientID, this.select_week.ClientID));
	}

Please try this one:

<form>
<asp:DropDownList ID="select_week" runat="server"  OnSelectedIndexChanged="Selection_Change"  AutoPostBack="true"  >  </asp:DropDownList>
</form>

public void Selection_Change(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
     rent_date.Text = select_week.SelectedValue.ToString();
}

Solution
========

1) Bind the Value for Dropdownlist in Page Load

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if(!isPostBack)
          {
                          select_week.DataSource = // Your Datatable
                          select_week.DataBind();
        }
}


2) call javascript method on  your control

<asp:DropDownList ID="select_week" runat="server" onChange="javascript:onassign();" />


3) Write a Javascript

<script language= "javascript" type ="text/javascript">
function onCloningCompleted()
     {
     if (document.all["ctl00_select_week"].value != '')
        {
          document.all["ctl00_rent_date"].value = document.all["ctl00_select_week"].value;
        }
     else
        {
          document.all["ctl00_rent_date"].value ='';
        }
     }
</script>


Good Luck
