change focus when textarea overflows

P: 35
Hi,

I have 2 fixed width and height textareas. with transparency and scroll bars/border hidden.

I am letting people type text into the 1st textarea....when they type enough text to cause the textarea to overflow/require scrolling(vertically) i would like the focus to shift to the 2nd textarea automatically.

I tried using element.scrollHeight but it only returns the height not including vertical scroll.

I will be giving them the option to alter font size dynamically so it will need to use this method rather than character count or row count.

Hope someone can help.
