Populating a textbox with text in another textbox as a user types AJAX or JS ASP.NET(VB)

I have 3 textboxes names tbEntry1, tbEntry2, and tbResult

I'm looking for a way, hopefully with an AJAX control or possibly javascript, that I can populate tbResult with the results of tbEntry1 and tbEntry2 on the fly in a format something like:

tbEntry1.text & "-" & tbEntry2.text

Is there an AJAX method to do this? Javascript? Better idea?

Use javascript since everything is on screen, so that you can avoid unnecessary traffic between the server and your browser.  This should work:
<html>
<head>
<script>
function populate_it(){
  var d = document;
  d.getElementById("tbResult").value = d.getElementById("tbEntry1").value+"-"+d.getElementById("tbEntry2").value;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
tbEntry1: <input type="text" name="tbEntry1" id="tbEntry1" oninput="populate_it()"><br/>
tbEntry2: <input type="text" name="tbEntry2" id="tbEntry2" oninput="populate_it()"><br/>
tbResult: <input type="text" name="tbResult" id="tbResult">
</body>
</html>

I've moved the textboxes into a repeater nested in a GridView. Questions on how to change the JS here:
