Information textbox depending on choice?

I would like to have a textbox to display a small block of text depending on the users choice from a choice field. Example being, Choice A makes information box display text. Choice B, different text in box. Choice C, third set of information in box.

I must be missing something. I can't really figure out how to accomplish this. I thought I could make a multi-line textbox, make a validation rule saying Choice=="Choice A" and then put my text for the "Message", but it hasn't worked so far. Can someone set me straight here?

Re: Information textbox depending on choice?

to change text within a text control you would need to script it with javascript.

much easier would be if you place 3 text controls on form, each with different text, and use formatting rules to show/hide them by current choice value.

eg. Choice == 'Option A' ==> hide textB and hide textC

Does the text require editing? If not, then would a calculated value using a lookup to a separate list do the job? Or even just put the text in the formula of the calculated value.
