Hi All,
I have a form which also displays details of database records.
I have added a radio group to control the display of the form.
How can I get the form to submit when one of the radio options in the group have been pressed ? This is to replace the standard submit button.

Many thanks.

you should be able to use 'onclick' inside your radio buttons..

<input type="radio" onclick="document.formName.submit();">

  <input name="radiobutton" type="radio" value="radiobutton" onclick="javascript: submit();" />
