Copying one a custom field onto another while on the Issue Edit screen

I need to copy the value of one of my custom fields on the Edit screen to another custom field. The workflow status will remain the same while doing this.

Thanks. I do have this installed. I use this during transitions. Could you give me more information? I am trying to copy the value of CustomField1 to CustomField2 when CustomField1 is changed.

Here's a sample code (add it to customfield1)

FormField cf1 = getFieldById(fieldChanged) 
FormField cf2 = getFieldByName("CustomField2")

cf2.setFormValue(cf1.getValue())

Note that in the UI you'll not see immediate update of customfield2, but it will be updated if you click anywhere on the form or just click update to save the issue changes.
