Auto populate text field from list

I have a list and i want to show the value of the list in the text field next to it.

How do i go about doing this ?

Any webassist tools could help with it?

i did a test page with something like this a while ago, (a bit clunky to look at but it does the job)

depending on the option chosen, a label is updated by a javascript function.

it isn't a text box as you requested, but this may help.

you should be able to view the javascript if you have firebug.
