I have a List B that has a look up column "State" to a column "State" in List A .List A has corresponding column "City" to each state(unique combination) . While adding new item in List B , State is a drop down which is populated from List A . I have a textbox "City" which should be populated based on the drop down "State" value from List A .

How can i implement it using Jquery . I tried to implement this using SPService . Can you please share some code sample .

Regards, Grigory

Is customizing Form is an option? – Maria Burton Sep 6 '12 at 20:07

Keep an hidden drop down which gets populated based on SPServices.cascading feature. On index change of hidden dropdown - populate the value in text box (using ontextchanged function)

SPServices have a cool feature called Cascaded-Dropdowns - have a look here

Cascaded drop downs wont work here as i need to populate a text box on drop down change event . Both drop down and text boxe's value exist in a different list . – Grigory Sep 1 '12 at 13:27

here is the link that displays a text in the text box based on the values selected from the drop down box.

Hope this helps!
