I am working on a form where the user has to select one of two button on 27 different items.  I keep get a debug error on my JavaScript and I can't figure out what I'm missing.  Here is my code (I have commented out some lines in the middle when the first variable value would not pass).  HELP (if possible):

//JavaScript Document
function frmValidate(rdo1, rdo2, frm)

      //beginning of how to alert user with two line breaks at end for a double space
      
      var errAlert = "The Following are required:\n\n";
      
      // counter to let you know how man errors exist...no alert if no error present
      
      var errCt = 0;
      
      for (var i=0; i< 4; i++)
      {
            if (frm(rdo1)[i].checked)
            {
                  errAlert = ""
                  errCt = 0;
                  break;
                  
            }
            else
            {
                  //if there is an error, let's add one to the count
                  errCt = errCt +1;
            }
      }
      
      if (errCt > 0)
      {
            errAlert = errAlert + "-- Question 1" + "\n"
      }
      
      /*errCt = 0
      for (var j=0; j<=3; j++)
      {
            if (document.getElementByID(rdo2).checked ==true)
            {
                  errAlert = ""
                  errCt = 0;
                  
                  return true;
                  break;
            }
            else
            {
                  //if there is an error, let's add one to the count
                  errCt = errCt +1;
            }
      }
      if (errCt > 0)
      {
            errAlert = errAlert + " -- Question 2" + "\n"
      }
      */
      
            if (errCt > 0)
            {
                  //if the error count is greater than zero, then let's alert the user of what he/she missed.
                  alert(errAlert);
                  return false;
            }
            
            return true;
      }

Hi cyndylove46,

what's rdo1, rdo2, frm? and I am confused by frm(rdo1)[i]?? U got checkboxes?

If they are, I would change this to

for (var i=0; i< 4; i++)
     {
          if (frm(rdo1)[i].checked)

for (var i=0; i<frm.chkbox.length; i++) {
    if (frm.chkbox[i].checked)
    ....


Cheers
Nickson

Thank you for asking.  This code is a bit convoluted since we (my pro friend and I) started.  

The rdo1, rdo2 was supposed to be the variables for radio button selection.  That didn't work, and we started looking at checked boxes.
