I am trying to validate that all questions are answered before I submit a page.  When I try and pull the value of the <input type="radio" id="touring" name="touring" value=1> and I have more then one Radio button I keep getting undefind and no value.  If i have only one radio button then i can get the correct value.
Javascript

function submitUpdateProduction()
      {
            str = document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring.value
            if (str.length < 1)
                  {
                        alert("Please answer if this is a touring production or not. " + str);
                        document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring.focus()
                        return false;
                  }
            document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.action = "../lastage/registration.asp?updateproduction=1";
            document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.method = "post";
            document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.submit();
            return true;
      }

HTML

<tr>
      <td colspan=3 class="reg10" valign="top" bgcolor=#ABDAE0>
            Is this a touring production?
      </td>
      <td class="reg10" valign="top" bgcolor=#ABDAE0>
            <input type="radio" id="touring" name="touring" value=1> &nbsp; Yes &nbsp;&nbsp;
            <input type="radio" id="touring" name="touring" value=0> &nbsp; No
      </td>
</tr>

if you have more than one radio with the same name, then you need to treat it as an array:

str = document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring[0].value
0

but I think what you want is not the value of the first radio, but the value of the checked one, correct?

if so ...

var checkedIndex = -1;

if ( document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring[0].checked==true )
   checkedIndex = 0;
else if ( document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring[1].checked==true )
   checkedIndex = 1;

if ( checkedIndex > -1 )
{
   str = document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring[checkedIndex].value;

...
}

actually, you can do it this way:

var checkedIndex = -1;

if ( document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring[0].checked==true )
   checkedIndex = 0;
else if ( document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring[1].checked==true )
   checkedIndex = 1;

if ( checkedIndex == -1 )
{
      alert("Please answer if this is a touring production or not. " + str);
      document.frmLAStageTixRegistration.touring.focus()
      return false;
}
