//Check if the window exists. If it does, kill it!
if (`window -ex "ah_textSwitchWin"`)deleteUI ah_textSwitchWin;

//Create window
window -t "textFields jumping :)" -wh 200 74 -s 0 ah_textSwitchWin;
//Simple Column
//This is the field that will spit some text to the other field
textField -w 150 -rfc ah_switch ah_tF1;
//This is the field that will recieve some text from the other field and then add some more text
textField -w 150 ah_tF2;

showWindow ah_textSwitchWin;

global proc ah_switch(){
string $ah_getText1 = `textField -q -tx ah_tF1`;
textField -e -tx ($ah_getText1 + " some text!") ah_tF2;

However you have to write something in the first Field and then click outside to then click inside it again to update the latter one. But with this code I'm sure you manage to implement it in your own code :) cheers
