I have a table that I loop through to populate a dropdown list and I want to populate text fields with data based on what the user selects from the dropdown menu. The data I want to output in the textfields is not the same as the value set in the option fields, but does correspond with that row. Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks

<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
  function AssigntoTextBox(dropDown) {
   dropDown.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[1].childNodes[0].value = dropDown.value;
  }
 </script>

     
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
   
        <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="tbName" />

        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlName" onchange="AssigntoTextBox(this)" runat="server">

It worked for me. What I did was, I had a drop down to a page and a text box. Now when ever a user changes the selection on the drop down that value will be apperead on the textbox. Are you looking something like this right?

Not exactly; when the user selects from the dropdown menu. The data I want to output in the textfields is not the same as the value set in the option fields, but does correspond with that row.

Your in the coldfusion area, is that right? and if yes, do you need a flash form example or a bind example with html and ajax?

I think bind example with html and ajax would be great.
