Javascript: changing how some part of an input text is displayed

P: 2
Hi forum,

In an input type=text, I would like to display the first ten characters being entered in bold, and the next one with the default style.

Is it possible to do this using Javascript, and how.

Thank you for your help,

You need separate inputs, one class or set of style properties for each.

You can use css to make them appear to be one element, by containing them in a span styled to look like an input, and removing their borders.

javascript can move the focus to the next field by checking the length of the first field on keydown.
