Dear Experts,
   I have 3 radio buttons on my page, which belong to the group rdoButtons.  They are named as follows..
First name = rdoFirstName
Last Name = rdoLastName
Both  = rdoBoth
My question to you, is how to dynamicly read which one is filled and display a number (ex: rdoFirstName = 1, rdoLastName = 2, rdoBoth = 0) on the page.  I need this asap.
Thanks,
Treason

This can be done very simple, i made a little example for you to test...

<HTML><SCRIPT>
function dread()
{
 var i, val;
 val = -1; // no radiobutton checked...

 for(i=0;i<document.form.rdoButtons.length;i++)
      {  if (document.form.rdoButtons[i].checked)            
                    val=document.form.rdoButtons[i].value;
              }

 alert("readout = "+val);
}

</SCRIPT><BODY>

<FORM NAME=form>
<INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=rdoButtons VALUE=1>First name<BR>
<INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=rdoButtons VALUE=2>Last name<BR>
<INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=rdoButtons VALUE=0>Both<BR>
<INPUT TYPE=BUTTON Onclick="dread()" VALUE="readout">
</FORM>
</BODY></HTML>

On second thought, you'd probebly like to keep the 'values' , hmm try this instead:

<HTML>

<SCRIPT>
function dread()
{
 var val;
 
 if (document.form.rdoButtons[0].checked) val=1;
 else if (document.form.rdoButtons[1].checked) val=2;
 else if (document.form.rdoButtons[2].checked) val=0;
 else val = -1;
 
 alert("readout = "+val);
}

</SCRIPT><BODY>

<FORM NAME=form>
<INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=rdoButtons VALUE=rdoFirst>First name<BR>
<INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=rdoButtons VALUE=rdoLast>Last name<BR>
<INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=rdoButtons VALUE=rdoBoth>Both<BR>
<INPUT TYPE=BUTTON Onclick="dread()" VALUE="readout">
</FORM>
