this is loosely what you are looking for

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
	<HEAD>
		<script>
			function runScript(e) 
			{
				if (e.keyCode == 13) 
				{
					var tb = document.getElementById("scriptBox");
					eval(tb.value);
					return false;
				}
			}



			function checkAndNext(thisObj)
			{
				var id = thisObj.getAttribute("id");
				var count = parseInt(id.split("_")[1]);
				if ( count < 3 )
				{
					if ( thisObj.value.length == 100 )
					{
						id = "text_"+(count+1);
						document.getElementById(id).style.display = "block";
						document.getElementById(id).focus();
					}
					
				}
			}
		</script>
	</HEAD>

	<BODY>
		<input id="text_1" type="text" onkeypress="checkAndNext(this)" style="width:900px"/>
