I have a drop down box ...
When the enduser selects something from this box, I need the focus to go to two radio buttons and require them to choose one of them...

and I need the radio buttons inactive UNTIL someone is selected from drop down...

Possible?

Try this:

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function selChk(obj) {
      if(obj.value!='nosel') {
            var rs = document.getElementsByName('rad');
            for(i=0; i<rs.length; i++){
                  rs[i].disabled = false;
            }
            if(rs.length>0) rs[0].focus();
      } else {
            var rs = document.getElementsByName('rad');
            for(i=0; i<rs.length; i++){
                  rs[i].disabled = true;
                  rs[i].checked = false;
                  rs[i].blur();
            }
      }
}

function frmChk(){
      var rs = document.getElementsByName('rad');
      var chk = false;
      for(i=0; i<rs.length; i++){
            if(rs[i].checked) return true;
      }
      
      alert('You must select one of the choices!');
      return false;
