Hi Experts,

I have an options form on a JSP that consist of multiple radio buttons, i'm trying to use javascript and i'm having trouble finding the property because the form uses transfer beans if name a property

<html:radio proptery="mytransferbean.getFormAttrubite" value="true" onClick=callJavaScript/>

 as opposed to putting all the form attributes in the form directly

<html:radio proptery="getFromAttrubite" value="true" onClick=callJavaScript/>

My javascript doesnt like nested names so

document.myForm.mytransferbean.getFormAttrubute

isnt found

Any ideas on  how to solve this problem????  I've tried using

document.myForm.element[1] etc but because the form is quite large its to many elements to manage.

Thanks!
Fynzy

You could directly pass radio object to Javascript function .
<html:radio proptery="mytransferbean.getFormAttrubite" value="true"  onClick="callJavaScript( this )"/>

function callJavaScript (obj) {
    alert(obj.value);
}

if i use getElementByName("")  if i have 2 properties the same, both radio buttons can i call each one as normal

document.getForm.getAttrubiteRadio[0]
document.getForm.getAttrubiteRadio[1]

Thanks,
Suzy
yes you should be able to do that... if there are more objects of the same name, the fuction returns an array of objects.
