how to make automatic show field?

how to make automatic show field?

how to make automatic show field?

I am trying to create form  in Domino Designer using Formula.
I'm very weak in programming, I think I am running in the wrong direction.
I have a form with 2 fields. Field A, B.
If I fill  field A (which is the text) , I want  the text in field A  will automatic show  in field B  too.
what should I do?
Hope this was descriptive enough and that someone can point me in the right direction.
Thank you very much.

RE: how to make automatic show field?

set the default value of field B to the name of field A.  That should do it!

RE: how to make automatic show field?

Actually, if you set the Default formula in field B to the name of field A, the doc will load, field B will look into field A and find nothing, and field B will then remain empty.

If you wish to have field B receive the value of field A, you need to set the Translation formula of field B to the name of field A. That way, when you input data into field A and then refresh the doc (with F9), field B's translation formula will go look for the value of field A and store it.

If you work with a Computed field, or a Computed for Display field, you only have one formula anyway, so you can't go wrong.

Also, you should really look into the Developer's Handbook, there are good explanations to get you started there.

Have fun !
