You can simply use this javascript function to move focus to the second textbox, call this function on the keypress event of first textbox as below:

<input type="text" id="txt1" onkeypress="MoveFocus(this.id,'txt2')">

here 'txt2' is the id of second textbox

function MoveFocus(source,target)
            var source = document.getElementById(source);
            var target = document.getElementById(target);

            if(source.value.length >= 2)
