I need to bind not only the value of the cfselect to a cfinput (which works just fine) but also the displayed text from the cfselect.  I need to end up with the id from the cfselect in one cfinput and the associated name that is displayed in the cfselect as the value of the second cfinput.  The results of the second cfinput is "null" as it stands now.

My cfselect:---------------------------------------
<cfloop query="QContactTypes">
<cfoutput>
<td>#QContactTypes.description# Contacts:</td>
<td><cfselect bind="cfc:globalcfc.basic.getcontacts(compid={compGrid.id},specialty=#QContactTypes.acronym#)" name="#QContactTypes.acronym#" display="contactname" selected="contactname" value="id" bindonload="false" size="10"></cfselect>
</td>
</cfoutput>
</cfloop>


My cfinputs:-------------------------------------------------------------
<cfloop query="QContactTypes">
<tr>
<cfoutput>
<td align="right">#QContactTypes.description#:</td>
<td><cfinput type="text" name="#QContactTypes.acronym#ID" bind="{#QContactTypes.acronym#@change}" />
<cfinput type="text" name="#QContactTypes.acronym#name" bind="{#QContactTypes.acronym#.selectedItem}" /></td>
</cfoutput>
</tr>
</cfloop>

I changed the cfinputs to bind on the .value and .text of the cfselect.  This worksjust fine.

<td><cfinput type="text" name="#QContactTypes.acronym#ID" bind="{#QContactTypes.acronym#.value}" />
<cfinput type="text" name="#QContactTypes.acronym#name" bind="{#QContactTypes.acronym#.text}" /></td>

<cfset qData = QueryNew ("value,display","varChar,varchar" )/>
<cfset t = QueryAddRow(qData)/>
<cfset t = QuerySetCell(qData,"value","no")>
<cfset t = QuerySetCell(qData,"display","No")>
<cfset t = QueryAddRow(qData)/>
<cfset t = QuerySetCell(qData,"value","yes")>
<cfset t = QuerySetCell(qData,"display","Yes")>

<cfset user_is_admin = "yes">

<cfform name="f1">
      <cfselect name="sel1" value="value" display="display" query="qData" selected="#user_is_admin#" queryPosition="below">
            <option value="">Select Option</option>
      </cfselect>
      <cfinput type="text" name="field1"  bind="{sel1.value}">
</cfform>
