i am using this function below and the user experience sucks because it does a postback.   how can i just create javascript so we dont have to do a postback eachtime the user selects a choice in any radiobutton.  

    Protected Sub RBL_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim RBL As RadioButtonList
        RBL = CType(sender, RadioButtonList)
        If RBL.SelectedItem.Text = "1" Or RBL.SelectedItem.Text = "2" Then
            Me.Panel3.Visible = True
                 
        End If
    End Sub

<asp:RadioButtonList
                                                                                                ID="jmirating" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True"
                                                                                                CssClass="whiteradio" onselectedindexchanged="RBL_SelectedIndexChanged"
                                                                                                RepeatDirection="Horizontal" TextAlign="Left" Width="403px">
                                                                                                        <asp:ListItem Value="5">-</asp:ListItem>
                                                                                                        <asp:ListItem Value="4">-</asp:ListItem>
                                                                                                        <asp:ListItem Value="3">-</asp:ListItem>
                                                                                                        <asp:ListItem Value="2">-</asp:ListItem>
                                                                                                        <asp:ListItem Value="1">-</asp:ListItem>
                                                                                                        <asp:ListItem Value="N/A">-</asp:ListItem>
                                                                                                    </asp:RadioButtonList>

I assume you are not using AJAX, correct?  I would recommend that you do this.  Check out the link below for details:  

http://www.asp.net/ajax/

One reason why I say this is because you will most likely find it much easier to use an UpdatePanel in AJAX than to try to unhide a hidden panel in Javascript.  Often, I have found, Javascript has issues finding ASP.NET controls that are hidden...

I see.

Try sticking the panel in a div, like so:

<div style="visiblity:hidden;" id="div1" runat="server">
<asp:panel runat=server id="panel1" visible="true" />
</div>

The ID and RUNAT are probably necessary... but it may take a little tinkering.  Give it a try and see what happens.  You should be able to reference this div from Javascript.  If you need some ideas on how to trigger the Javascript from a serverside control, let me know.

I would suggest something like the following:

-- In HTML --
<script language="javascript">
setInterval("checkchanged()",2500); //this will check every 2.5 seconds

function checkchanged()
{
if(document.getElementById('RBL).selectedIndex==1||document.getElementById('RBL').selectedIndex==2)
{
document.all.div1.style.visibility='block'
}
}
</scipt>

You will have to mess around with this a bit... but the idea is there, at least.
