View Full Version : autofill a variable value..

10-20-2003, 08:46 PM
Hello I am using coldfusion to create a field that will allow one to pick a date from a calendar.

However, on this form, I am going to have fields for two dates, so, it would be nice if, after a person entered a value for one field, automatically this value got entered into another field..

I searched the forums and tried using the option suggested below...

autofill forms (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4094&highlight=autofill)

but could not get the code to work...

This is what the test page looks like...

Test page (http://www.northwestcollege.edu/test/index.cfm)

I was wondering if I could use javascript somehow to insert a value into the Date field 2 that matched the value selected in Date 1?

I am attaching the code that is one the page...the initial value portion of Date 2:
is what I need to populate based on the selection from Date 1

I guess the answer that I am looking for is how can I insert a variable whose value is dependent on what is picked in Date1 into the value for Date 2...

I look forward to your insight!
