You have to put this javascript to your document (print it):

var arrInput = new Array(0);
  var arrInputValue = new Array(0);

function addInput() {
  arrInput.push(arrInput.length);
  arrInputValue.push("");
  display();
}

function display() {
  document.getElementById('parah').innerHTML="";
  for (intI=0;intI<arrInput.length;intI++) {
    document.getElementById('parah').innerHTML+=createInput(arrInput[intI], arrInputValue[intI]);
  }
}

function saveValue(intId,strValue) {
  arrInputValue[intId]=strValue;
}  

function createInput(id,value) {
  return "<input type='text' id='test "+ id +"' onChange='javascript:saveValue("+ id +",this.value)' value='"+ value +"'><br>";
}

function deleteInput() {
  if (arrInput.length > 0) {
     arrInput.pop();
     arrInputValue.pop();
  }
  display();
}

As seen from code, you can add controls like this:

<p id="parah">Click below to dynamically create/remove input boxes in this field</p>

<a href="javascript:addInput()">Add more input field(s)</a><br>
<a href="javascript:deleteInput()">Remove field(s)</a>



So let's say two simple functions:
addInput();
deleteInput();
