At the below script how can I make the height of 2nd input box shorter (just fitting the content) and keeping the height of the first as it is? Note that I want to use the same css for both input boxes.
Thank you

You can refer to the input as a child of the selecteddiv2 and give it a height that way.

#selecteddiv2 input {
   height: 10px;
}

Thank you.
 Please note that "I want to use the same css for both input boxes."

So I need a dynamic height for the input.

What is the input box going to base its height on?

The input is going to be set by the font size under what conditions with your setup will this not happen?
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
</head>
<body>
  <div class="address">
    <input type="text" style="font-size: 20px" value="Test" />
    <input type="text" style="font-size: 12px" value="Testing Two" />
  </div>
</body>
</html>

The fonts should have the same value.
The value of the first input is very large so it appears with a longer input. (value="testetetetetetse erseresresrsaömv ,almv, aplmv, aplrmv ,aplrva,e rvpmaer,vpml")
I want to make the 2nd input shorter since it has a short value

Oh I see you mean the width - thought you were referring to the height?
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function resizeInput() {
    $(this).attr('size', $(this).val().length);
}
$(function () {
$('input[type="text"]')
    // event handler
    .keyup(resizeInput)
    // resize on page load
    .each(resizeInput);
});
</script>
<style type="text/css">
</style>
</head>
<body>
	<div class="address">
		<input type="text" value="Test" />
		<input type="text" value="Testing Two and a very long one" />
	</div>
</body>
</html>

Then I doubt you will find a crossbrowser solution.
