    How to put together a function Warning + Copy Function

    How to put together a function Warning + Copy Function


    Dear friends,

    I'm the many days to solve this problem, if anyone can help me I appreciate it a lot.

    I need to put on line 1 which is on line 2. I tried hundreds of times and nothing works.

    The solution is intended that the form 2 (represented by line1) is copied the text that is in the field "email" from another form 1.

    The problem is that the id = "user_email" has to have to maintain their normal function (send an error message to fill the field), but if I replace id = "user_email" for id = "email_copy" stops work function and warning function only works id = "email_copy."

    That is, you must have notice to fill the field, to send a warning if it is empty or contain errors. And you also need to copy the field from another form so that the user is not forced to write by hand every time, so tiring.


    Line 1 - <input name="user_email" id="user_email" type="text" size=26>

    Line 2 - id = "email_copy"


    Thank you,
