I have this form that gets the table and wid from last form. It works fine as long as the users click on all the radio buttons. But if the radio buttons are not clicked, it suppose to highlight that question is red, but instead it just gets stuck at this point

You are working on: wid   and $table

here is the functions file that generate the radio button and in the snippet I included the actual form code

XXXXXXXXXXXXX
file that generates radio buttons
XXXXXXXXXXXXX

<?php

function checked( $number, $value ) {
     $result = "";
     
     if ( $number == $value )
          $result = " checked='checked' ";
 
     return $result;          
}
 
 
 
function somename($someparametername)
{
 
// Capture current value of button
//
$currValue = -1;
if ( isset( $_REQUEST["r_$someparametername"] ) )
     $currValue = intval( $_REQUEST["r_$someparametername"]);
          else
               $txtValue = " ";
 echo "<table width='200' height='87' border='1'>
  <tr>
    <td width='200'>";
      echo "<input name='r_$someparametername' type='radio' value='1' ".checked(1, $currValue)."/>Yes</td>";
    echo"
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>";
      echo"<input name='r_$someparametername' type='radio' value='0' ".checked(0, $currValue)."/>No</td>";
  echo "</tr>
  <tr>
    <td>";
      echo "<input name='r_$someparametername' type='radio' value='2' ".checked(2, $currValue)."/>N/A</td>";
  echo "</tr>
</table>";

}
function display_title($field, $title){
    if(isset($_POST['r_' . $field]) && trim($_POST['r_' . $field]) == ''){
         echo "<span style='color: red' >$title<br />Please Choose an Option</span><br />";
    } else {

if none radio-button is check $_REQUEST["r_$someparametername"]  is not set. So that form elementname is not in that array, as it is not send by the browser.

So better try for this case:
if(empty($_POST['r_' . $field]) || trim($_POST['r_' . $field]) == ''){

It's the line outside
 if(isset($_POST['r_' . $field]) && trim($_POST['r_' . $field]) == ''){

So general to check radiobuttons and checkboxes is better done with empty instead of isset, because isset is always false if no such elements is selected.

Several things.
1. The code block you've provided doesn't parse.  166 and 167 are unnecessary.

2. Line 6 is unnecessary.

3.  Lines 24, 28, 36, 43, 50, 57, 64: !isset() does not play well with web forms.  Use empty() instead.  Vice versa; isset() should be replaced with !empty() for most of what you're doing.

4. Lines 73-78: same thing.  replace '== ""' with empty() calls.
