Populating hidden field based on drop down value

  1. if anyone could point me in the right direction on how to implement the following:

    when a user selects a drop down (store), a hidden field (district) is populated based on the store value.

    users don't know what district they are in, so i'm unable to use the conditional drop downs (select district, then store. also there are about 60+ districts which would cause a headache in the form building, plus i need the district value in the same field and not 60+ different fields)

    i've thought about using a delimiter in the store value (67|district1) and parsing it out, but i'm unsure of how to go about that.

    any suggestions would be great!
