html:form - issue

I have a html:form with a couple of text boxes (html:text). The value of the second text box is automatically populated by a valid entry in the first text box. (Say for example, if we write a city name, the state is filled in automatically in the second text box).
- What is the best possible way to do this?
- How will I be able to read the text box value?
The document.form.item.value (as in JavaScript) doesnt seem to work with struts tag.

Javascript is the only way to do this without reloading the page.

If you do a "View Source" on the jsp generated by struts is nothing but simple old static HTML.
and since javascript works this form and elements, in all probability there is a problem with your script.

maybe you could post the script here or on the javascript forum. you will be amazed how quickly your questions are answered by Eric Pascarello in the js forum.
