Using Javascript to grab Radio Button Value

Very simply, I have two radio buttons:

Single
Double

which represent a "door-type" ( a single door, double door).


When I click one of these buttons, my intention is to toggle a photo. Anyways, I am ALWAYS getting the value "single".


To summarize, the doSwap function is always alerting "single" when in fact, I am clicking 'double'.


Thanks!!



My Javascript:
-----------------
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">

<!--
      YAHOO.example = function() {

            var $D = YAHOO.util.Dom;
            var $E = YAHOO.util.Event;
            var $A = YAHOO.util.Anim;
            var $M = YAHOO.util.Motion;
            var $DD = YAHOO.util.DD;
            var $ = $D.get;
            
            // Public Variables


                                    
                                    return {
                                    
                                          init : function() {
                                          
                                                // Make sure pics are right
                                                this.resetPics();
                                                
                                                // Attach Events

                                          doSwap : function() {
                                          
                                                // Change the photo
                                                alert($('door_type').value);
                                          
                                          },
                                          
                                          resetPics: function() {

      }();
      
      
      // Fire when available

      //-->
