put this in head section of your page :

function doTheCopy(obj) {
   alert("fff");
   document.getElementById("caschild2editAinp_id").value = document.getElementById("caschild2editBinp_id").value;
}

replace line 5-6 by

onchange="document.getElementById('caschild2editAinp_id').value = document.getElementById('caschild2editBinp_id').value";

>put this in head section of your page :

inside script tag of course :)

<script language="javascript">
function doTheCopy(obj) {
   alert("fff");
   document.getElementById("caschild2editAinp_id").value = document.getElementById("caschild2editBinp_id").value;
}
</script>

Hai,

Find below code, just copy and execute those lines

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
      function setSelectedVal(){
        var selObj = document.getElementById("caschild2editA");
        var val = selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value;
        document.getElementById("caschild2editBinp").value = val;       
      }
      
      function setUseVal(){       
        document.getElementById("testloadfromselect").value = document.getElementById("caschild2editBinp").value;       
      }
</script>
<input class="textinput" maxlength="255" name="caschild2editAinp" id="caschild2editAinp_id" size="40" />
      <input class="textinput" value="test data" maxlength="255" name="caschild2editBinp" id="caschild2editBinp_id" size="40" />      
      <select class="select" style="width: 250px" name="caschild2editA" id="caschild2editA" onchange="setSelectedVal()">
      <option value='10875' >Accounting-Business Management</option><option value='10877' >State Arts Associations</option></select>
      <td><br></br>
      <input class="textinput" maxlength="255" name="testloadfromselect" id="testloadfromselect_id" size="40" />

i can get the code going while its static on the page and have the code below where the first section works and displays the info on the select box, section 2 displays the second data but does not work, where this select has been dynamicaly built via ajax to work with the above cascade.
function showSelected()
{
//  section 1
      alert("in");
      var selObj = document.getElementById('casparent1edit_id');
      var selIndex = selObj.selectedIndex;
      alert(selIndex)
      alert(selObj.options[selIndex].value);
      alert(selObj.options[selIndex].text);
// section 2      
var selObj = document.getElementById('caschild1edit_id');
      var selIndex = selObj.selectedIndex;
      alert(selIndex)
      alert(selObj.options[selIndex].value);
      alert(selObj.options[selIndex].text);
}
