Hello,

I have 4 radio buttons (all radiobuttons have the same "name" & same "id" but diff. "values")with a normal button beside it. When I click on the normal button, I want to be able to get the selected radiobutton's value through a function call. How do I do that in javascript?

By the way, id should be unique.
