I have a radio button on a form and in the hidden table row below it, a hidden textfield.  When the "yes" option is selected on the radio button, javascript code makes the table row visible so the user can now see the textfield to fill it in.   Problem:  I want to make this textfield required using ColdFusion MX 7 onsubmit, onserver settings;  when submitting the form, if the radio button option is "no", and this textfield is hidden, I get an error stating to fill in the textfield (but I can't because it's hidden).   I really only need the textfield to be required when it is visible (user has chosen "yes" on the radio button).   I'm new to CF and even newer to Javascript --- how can I make this textfield required only when the radio button is selected "yes"??  Thanks so very much!!
