you can change the text in boxes from anywhere in the code. maybe you were thinking of C++ where you have private variables that you cannot change from other sections of code without a global variable?
you can also add events. so you can add an event that updates the output box when the dropdown menu is changed, or when the input value is changed, as jcrox demonstrated so perfectly.
