ew lookup value to br copied in an textbox field

i have productlookup field in custom vf page,instead of selecting lookup field on type of the content in lookup ield need to save in a text box called new product ????????????

can anyone help me with this


you would still be using teh lookup to get the value I guess.


If so, you can just copy value from the lookup to your text field in teh apex code before saving.  If you want the same on population , you can have a onchange action support with that ionput field , invoking a method that does so.


VF page :


<apex:inputField value="{!lookup}" >

        <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" action="{!populateText}" rerender ="textBox" />



<apex:inputText value="{!textvalue}" id="textBox" />





public pageReference populateText()


      if(lookup != NULL)

              textvalue = lookup;


       return null;




Hope thsi helps.


No i use this logic i am getting error as INvalid Id"


I am not sure why you gettign the error , it might be becuase you are trying to populate a text filed to the id field. If that is so , please get the actual id for the name and then populate.


if nto so , 

try this :


if(lookup != NULL)


    textValue= '';

    textValue += lookup;



it would be easier for me to help if you could elaborate on exactly what you are trying to do.
