I want to copy contents of one text from one into another this has to happen in real time as if I am typing in two text boxes simultaneously, how can I achieve this using javascript?

Above code lags by one key press.

Got it.

function copyTextBoxes(evt) {
// evt = window.event;
var groupNameTxt = document.getElementById('groupName');
var fnameTxt = document.getElementById('fname');
groupNameTxt.value=fnameTxt.value + " Users";

<form name="addLDAPApplicationGroup" action="demo_form.asp">
<input type="text" id="groupName" name="groupName" disabled value="disabled">

<input type="text" id="fname" name="fname" onKeyUp="copyTextBoxes(this)" onmouseup="copyTextBoxes(this)" onmouseover="copyTextBoxes(this)">

<input type="button" value="Submit">

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
