To get "probability" field values assigned automatically when selecting "Stage" field on opportunity through VF page

When selecting the "Stage" field on creating new Opportunity record through standard page , "probability" field get values automatically.

But when you access both the fields using inputField in VF page ; it do not gives the values automatically .

For e.g :- just copy\paste this code in VF page and try to select the "Stage" field ; it will not render the value of Probability field.

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">

<apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.StageName}"/>
<apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.Probability}"/>


Resolution :- 

"OpportunityStage" object represents a value in the opportunity stage picklist & provides additional information about the stage of a Opportunity, such as its probability or forecast category.

So I have tried to query the OpportunityStage object on the basis of "MasterLabel " field ,Please follow the below mentioned code for implementing this work in VF page :-

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.js" />
<script src="/soap/ajax/15.0/connection.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/soap/ajax/15.0/apex.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

sforce.connection.sessionId = "{!$Api.Session_ID}";

function processChange(){

var obj = document.getElementById('{!$Component.frm.stageFieldId}');
var p = document.getElementById('{!$Component.frm.probabilityFieldId}');

var qr = sforce.connection.query("Select DefaultProbability From OpportunityStage where MasterLabel = '" + $(obj).val() + "'") ;
records = qr.getArray("records");

for (var i=0; i< records.length; i++) {
var record = records[i];
return true;

<apex:form id="frm">
<apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.StageName}" onchange="processChange()" id="stageFieldId" />
<apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.Probability}" id="probabilityFieldId"/>

NOTE :- You can directly copy\save this code without any modifications , however ; as this is a sample code, kindly modify it according to your requirement.
