Use script to fetch the textfield element. In java script, use document.getElementById("textfield-ID"); or document.form-name.textfield-name.

And



Cheers,
Raj.

Yes you have to do this using some client side script (eg Javascript).

You could capture the keypress event and check if the value in the first text box has been erased. Then clear the value in the second text box too.

Check the events generated by the textfield HTML element and call the script function for the most suitable one.

Cheers,
Raj.
