ok i'm not sure how you've created your radio button.
but assume you have a button that you want to submit information but it needs to do validations first.

so what you can do is create a function to handle all your validations.

you didn't mention what version of AS you're using the following example is based on AS2 but it explains the logic. It also assumes your radio button has 2 frames for selected or not selected. did you build your radio buttons as components or just normal movie clips? if the latter you'll need to check each one individually as you aren't using radiogroups. so assume you have rd1 and rd2 as radiobuttons and first frame is not selected.

function validateSelections():Boolean {
if (rd1._currentFrame ==1 && rd2._currentFrame == 1 )
{
return false;
} else {
return true;
}
}

then on your button.

submit btn.onRelease = function () {
if (validateSelections) {
//they selected something carry on;
} else {
//none of the buttons were selected so notify accordingly.
}
}

not sure what you're refering to by validations, are you wanting to check that a radio button is selected for example?

yes... by default all radio buttons are not checked. if any one forget to select i want to notify them that you have to select yes / no . and this radio button is not from Flash Components, its custom created.

just tell me if you want anything else....
