Basic testing for radios:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function testrad()
{
   obj=document.myform.rads;
   for (i=0;i<obj.length;i++)
   {
      if (obj[i].checked)
      {
         alert('radio '+i+' is checked with a value of '+obj[i].value);
         return;
      }
      alert('No radio has been checked')
   }
}
//-->
</script>

this assumes:

<form name="myform">
   <input type="radio" name="rads" value="A">
   <input type="radio" name="rads" value="B">
   <input type="radio" name="rads" value="C">
   <input type="radio" name="rads" value="D">
</form>

Now if you post a little more detail of what you need, or your code, we will be happy to supply the detail you need.

Example:

<script language="javascript">
function checkCorresponding(fObj)
{
   val = fObj["myval"].value;
   rObj = fObj["rad"];
   switch(val)
   {
      case "val1":
         rObj[0].checked=true;
         break;
      case "val2":
         rObj[1].checked=true;
         break;
      case "val3":
         rObj[2].checked=true;
         break;
      case "val4":
         rObj[3].checked=true;
         break;
   }
}
</script>

<form name="myform">
 <input type=text onkeyUp="checkCorresponding(this.form)" name="myval">
 <input type=radio name="rad">
 <input type=radio name="rad">
 <input type=radio name="rad">
 <input type=radio name="rad">
</form>
