You have to make sure that both fields have 'id's.  Then you can do this:
<script type="text/javascript">
document.getElementById('TextField').value = document.getElementById('HiddenField').value;

If you use jquery

var foo=$('#test123').val();
<input type="hidden" id="test123" value="hello">
<input id="from_test123" name="something">
