Need Help with inserting data in hidden field based upon radio button selection.

I have a form created with Adobe Dreamweaver Developer's Toolbox with a radio group where the user can select one of 5 selections.  Four of the answers result in a 'y' value and one results in a 'n' value for a "licensed" field.  Based upon this y or n value I want to insert the value "Contractor" or "Associate" to a  "membertype" field in my MySql database. The "membertype" field is included in the form as a hidden field.   I have made several attempts with <cfif> and IIF statements to try and set the value of the hidden field, however, I am unable to capture the value of "licensed", and the if statement always defaults to the "else" value.

I am attaching my code, without my if statement attempts, and would appreciate someone could give me the proper code to accomplish my goal.


<cfinclude template="../includes/common/KT_common.cfm">
<cfinclude template="../includes/tng/tNG.inc.cfm">
<cfscript>
// Make a transaction dispatcher instance
tNGs = Request.tNG_CreateObject("tNG_dispatcher");
tNGs.init("../");
</cfscript>
<cfscript>
// Start trigger
formValidation = Request.tNG_CreateObject("triggers.tNG_FormValidation");
formValidation.init();
tNGs.prepareValidation(formValidation);
// End trigger
</cfscript>
<cfscript>
// Make an insert transaction instance
ins_nari_company = Request.tNG_CreateObject("tNG_insert");
ins_nari_company.init("datasource");
tNGs.addTransaction(ins_nari_company);
// Register triggers
ins_nari_company.registerTrigger("STARTER", "Trigger_Default_Starter", 1, "POST", "KT_Insert1");
ins_nari_company.registerTrigger("BEFORE", "Trigger_Default_FormValidation", 10, formValidation);
ins_nari_company.registerTrigger("END", "Trigger_Default_Redirect", 99, "../login.cfm");
// Add columns
ins_nari_company.setTable("nari_company");
ins_nari_company.addColumn("company_name", "STRING_TYPE", "POST", "company_name");
ins_nari_company.addColumn("licensed", "STRING_TYPE", "POST", "licensed");
ins_nari_company.addColumn("membertype", "STRING_TYPE", "POST", "membertype");
ins_nari_company.setPrimaryKey("id", "NUMERIC_TYPE");
</cfscript>
<cfscript>
// Execute all the registered transactions
tNGs.executeTransactions();
</cfscript>
<cfscript>
// Get the transaction recordset
rsnari_company = tNGs.getRecordset("nari_company");

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

adding an onClick event to each of your radio inputs should do the trick:

for the "y" ones add:
onClick="document.getElementById('membertype').value='Contractor';"

for the "n" one change 'Contractor' to 'Associate' in the line above.
