function count()
{
  var total=document.getElementById("text").value;
  total=total.replace(/\s/g, '');
  document.getElementById("total").innerHTML="Total Characters:"+total.length;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">
 <textarea id="text" onkeyup="count();" placeholder="Enter Some Text"></textarea>
 <p id="total">Total Characters:0</p>
</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we make a textbox and use onkeyup event to call count() function on every key press and under count() function we get the text written on textbox and then we remove the white space beacuse we have to count only characters and after that we display the total count.You may also like Add And Remove Textbox Using JavaScript
