auto-populate a textbox

Does anyone know how to populate a textbox based on a value the user selects in a comboBox? For instance, when a user selects "Choice A" from the comboBox, I want the textBox to be populated with the text "GOOD CHOICE". If user selects "Choice A", the textBox is populated with "BAD CHOICE". I am really stuck. Thank you. Higgledy

First, it's important to use proper terminology. There's no such thing as a "combo box" in HTML. Read: HtmlHasNoComboBox

Second, where's the code you've tried so far? We're more than happy to help, but we won;t write the code for you. To get you started, obviously you'll need a change handler on the select element.
