View Full Version : How to populate entered into text1 into multiple textboxes

Hi, I have a form that user enters text in Text1. I need Text1 contents to be repeated throughout the form seven times in different paragraphs. What is the best way to do this ??

<input name="TEXT1" type="text" value="" size="20" maxlength="50"/>

I tried simply copying and pasting the code where needed, but this causes unnecessary blank spaces (not sure why).

How can I populate TEXT2, TEXT3, TEXT4, TEXT5, TEXT6, TEXT7 with contents of TEXT1?

Thank you.

The jsp form is a legal document that needs the name entered once repeated throughout the form.

then could it not just be collected from the one field? seems possibly redundant to make it automatic to repeat

Yes, what Ed said. Particularly if the fields needs to have the same value.
