Input questions

In a program that I am working on I let the user input name, adress, telefonnr etc in different windows on the screen. I have created the windows by using the function window( ).
In the windows I use the function gets to determine what the user have printed. How do I prevent the program from printing characters outside the window if the name is longer then the the window?

And how can I let the user "jump" betwen the windows at any time by pressing a key ex(TAB)? I have thought about some functions like getch, gotoxy. But I can´t figure out how I at the same time use the gets function to let the user enter his string?

Please help me with this problem!

i have written a generic input routine which will work in windows on many different OS (Dos, Unix, Mac, ...). I'll send you the code but not for 10 points. If you give me 100 points I'll send you the code.
