well this is more of a javascript question ... but theres a couple way's to do it ...

but if you make a function you could do this

function IsRadioButtonChecked( )
{
           alert( document.formname.radiobuttoname.checked );

            return document.formname.radiobuttonname.checked;
}


or you could pass the function the radio button you want to use

function IsRadioButtonChecked( objRadioButton )
{
           alert( objRadioButton.checked )
           return objRadioButton.checked;
}


so you could do this


<input type="button" name="btnTest" value="Click Me To See If A Radio Button Is Checked" onclick="IsRadioButtonChecked( );">


or

<input type="button" name="btnTest" value="Click Me To See If A Radio Button Is Checked" onclick="IsRadioButtonChecked( document.formname.radiobuttonname );">

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function radio_button_checker()
{
var radio_choice = false;
for (counter = 0; counter < radio_form.radio_button.length; counter++)
{
if (radio_form.radio_button[counter].checked)
radio_choice = true;
}
if (!radio_choice)
{
alert("Please select a letter.")
return (false);
}
return (true);
}

-->
</script>


<form method="get" action="http://www.google.com"
onsubmit="return radio_button_checker()" name="radio_form">
<input type="radio" value="A" name="radio_button">A
<br>
<input type="radio" value="B" name="radio_button">B
<br>
<input type="radio" value="C" name="radio_button">C
<br>
<input type="radio" value="D" name="radio_button">D
<br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>

And if you do want to do it in an asp page after submit then it returns it's value if checked, check it like this:

If Request.Form("radiobuttonName") <> "" Then
  'True
Else
  'False
End If

Be sure the name and value are set or else it still won't work.
You can also have more radiobuttons with the same name, the checked one gives his value then. For example both names are name="gender" and the value of each is: value="Male" and value="Female"
Then you can see with Request.Form("gender") what value is chosen..
