You would need to do something like:
    <form runat="server">

        <input id="mytxt1" runat="server" />
        <input id="mytxt2" runat="server" />

        <asp:Button id="mybutton" runat="server" OnClick="do_stuff" OnClientClick="return something();" Text="Click Me" />

    </form>

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function something() {
            document.getElementById('<%= mytxt2.ClientID %>').value = document.getElementById('<%= mytxt1.ClientID %>').value;
            return false;
        }
    </script>

Open in new window

Note: You'll need to take the return false; part out if you want the page to postback. I just added it in to stop the post back so you can see the copy take place.
