Experts,

Could you please help me with the following and an example or a sample code would be really helpful.

1. I have a drop down with three options (say option1, option2, option3) and when option1 selected, I need to populate a text box.
2. If the option1 is selected and if the user changes to other two options then text should be hidden or not visible to the user
3. Nothing should happen when option2 and options3 are selected.

Thanks in advance and appreciate all your help.

Using jQuery..

<script>
function select1Changed() {
            if ($('#select1').val() == "one") {
                $('#textbox1').val('some value');
                $('#textbox1').show();
            } else {
                $('#textbox1').hide();
            }
        }
</script>

<select id="select1" onchange="select1Changed();">
            <option value="one">Option1</option>
            <option value="two">Option2</option>
            <option value="three">Option3</option>
        </select>
        <br />
        <input type="text" id="textbox1" value=""/>

Thanks for the reply, appreciate it.
But I would like to generate just the text box with no value like

Enter the Other info : TEXTBOX...

Hope that is clear and would like to have it in JavaScript instead of JQuery...

Appreciate your help

            if (ddnSelectedValue == "one") {
                document.getElementById("divOtherOption").style.display = 'block';
            } else {
                document.getElementById("divOtherOption").style.display = 'none';
            }
        }

<select id="select1" onchange="select1Changed();">
