I have a custom object 'Custom case'. I have selected a contact in the field 'contact name' using a lookup relationship. When the user selects a contact in that field corresponding that particular contact's phone number and email id should be displayed in the fields 'contact email and contact phone'..

how to accomplish this?

Thanks, Savitha C
