I have a form with 3 fields in a form, UserName, City, Country. Length of each field should not exceed 10 characters. If it exceeds it, the page should be reloaded with error message on the same line of the text box.
Can anybody tell me how I can do it?

Unless a malicious user writes his own form to submit to your server.
Point is, client-side validation
should never be trusted
Yes, go ahead and add the maxlength attribute -- that's good for users since they cannot enter too many characters. But also check the length when the code is submitted.
In fact, validation should occur at every layer in the app in case someone is trying to spoof the upper layers. It also makes your code more robust and re-usable.
