Hi, I need help creating a javaScript to do the following:

I have 1 text box and 3 radioButton choices.  They're within a loop so this set of 4 repeats (array).  What I need help with:

1) If radio value="1" id="1" is selected, then text box must be filled in. (So if user doesn't, the JavaScript validates and produces message: "you must enter a value for the text box)

2) If radio value="2" id="2" is selected, clear any value from the text box

3) If radio value="3" id="3" is selected, clear any value from the text box

4) If "Select All" link is click, tick all radio value="1" id="1" (I HAVE THIS PART WORKING)

I have the code posted below.

Thank you tons!
<script type="text/javascript">
var checkAll = function(begins){
  for(i=0; (a=document.getElementsByTagName('input')[i]); i++){
    if(a.type == "radio"){
      var id = a.id.substring(0, begins.length);
      if(id == begins){
        a.checked = true;
      }
    }
  }
}
</script>

this should work, although I haven't had the time to test it... I split the javascript into multiple functions so you can mix and match with the different elements depending on what you are aiming for... Play around with it and see if it's what your looking for.

Also make sure to adjust the coldfusion so that #rowid# is equal to the row id.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.

this doesn't quite work. for instance, there's no visible 'check all' link/button/option.  Also, the radio buttons can't be check (you can check them, but nothing happens).  I'm going to tinker with it.

Yeah there are a bunch of typos and some logic that needs straightened out. I have a bunch of it fixed and tested.. i'll post the corrected code.

here it is fully functioning... you'll have to make the approriate adjustments to make it do what you want for multiple rows.
