Hi Harish,
i used the concept innerhtml.but my requirement is all the text boxes with the same name.


the code is as follows:

function changeIt()
{

for(s=1;s<=document.form.t1.value;s++)
{

my_div.innerHTML = my_div.innerHTML +"<br><input type='text' name='t1'>"
}}
}


if i change the text name in the onclick event it works..if i use the same name of text box inside <body> it wont work..

any idea....

document.form.t1.value is the string. You are missing length to get the number of characters entered.
