i am using javascript to enable/disable radio buttons on the basis if i enter value in textfield, it enables the radio buttons working fine..

but i am using four fields which are all dependednt upon the textbox, so here is my code!


function disableGroup(which, formName, groupName) {
var val = which.value;
val = val.replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g,"");  // strip leading and trailing  spaces
which.value = val;  // write amended val back to text field

if (val.length > 2) {  // at least three characters entered
for (var i=0; i<formName.elements.length; i++) 
{
	if (formName.elements[i].name == groupName) {
	formName.elements[i].disabled = false;
	formName.elements[i].checked = true;
	formName.elements[i].value = "";
	}
}
}
else {
for (var i=0; i<formName.elements.length; i++) {
if (formName.elements[i].name == groupName) {
formName.elements[i].disabled = true;
formName.elements[i].checked = false;
formName.elements[i].value = "";
}
}
}
}

<input type="text" name="cal" id="cal" 
onchange = "disableGroup(this, this.form, 'ar');">

<input type="radio" name="ar" id="ar1" disabled=true>Yes&nbsp;
<input type="radio" name="ar" id="ar2" disabled=true>No

but it works for only one set of radio buttons, if i have multiple fields, how i change this script to work

Please guide

            $(function(){
                $('input[type="text"]').change(function(){
                    if( $(this).val() == '') {
                        console.log("dis");
                        $('input[name="ar"]').attr('disabled','true');
                    }

I've taken the preload.js line out as its not relevant, and tidied a little

<html>
    <head>
        <title>test</title>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
        <style type="text/css">
        </style>
        <script type='text/javascript'>
            $(function(){
                $('input[type="text"]').change(function(){
                    if( $(this).val() == '') {
                        $('input[name="ar"]').attr('disabled','true');
                    }
                    else{
                        $('input[name="ar"]').attr('disabled','');
                    }
                })
            })

        </script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <input type="text" name="cal" id="cal">

        <input type="radio" name="ar" id="ar1" disabled=true>Yes&nbsp;
        <input type="radio" name="ar" id="ar2" disabled=true>No

Ok, I do not know what are you trying to do here, i tried jquery before as it was not working, my question is the above may be fine and may work for one set of radio button, but what if i have 3 set of radio buttons with yes/no values and one textarea

then what my approch will be..

and on the clearence of textbox value, it should clear all values from the radio buttons and the textarea..

the current code mine is working the way it is but it is working for one set of radio button and i am trying to make it work by using in moe than 3 or 4 sets of radio buttons

Have annotated text, have added textarea as mentioned on para 3 above, I clear checked values/disable buttons/clear text from textarea and text content when top text box is empty.
<html>
   <head>

      </style>
      <script type='text/javascript'>
         $(function(){
            $('input[type="text"]').keyup(function(){ //when a keyup is detected in the text box
               if( $(this).val() == '') { //if the text box is empty
                  //disable the radio buttons in the div, and  clear their checked status, cleat textarea
                  $('#agroup  input[type="radio"]').attr('disabled','true').attr('checked','');
                  $('#agroup  input[type="text"]').val("").attr('disabled','true'); //.val("") clears content of textarea and
                  $('#agroup  textarea').val("").attr('disabled','true')
               }
               else{ // remove the disabled states

It will not work in the above case because the script cant find the form items inside the table cells, I have changed the selectors to work in this scenario
<html>
    <head>
        <title>test</title>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
        <style type="text/css">
        </style>
        <script type='text/javascript'>
            $(function(){
                $('input[type="text"]').keyup(function(){ //when a keyup is detected in the text box
                    var radios = $('input[type="radio"]');
                    var textarea = $("textarea");
                    if( $(this).val() == '') { //if the text box is empty
                        //disable the radio buttons in the div, and  clear their checked status, cleat textarea
                        radios.attr('disabled','true').attr('checked','');
                        textarea.val("").attr('disabled','true')
                    }
                    else{ // remove the disabled states
                        radios.attr('disabled','');
                        textarea.attr('disabled','')
                    }
                })
            })

        </script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <table align="center" width="100%">
            <form method="post" action="test.html">

                        <!--<input type="text" name="testtext" id="testtext" disabled=true><br />-->
                        <input type="radio" name="ar" id="ar1" disabled=true>Yes&nbsp;
                        <input type="radio" name="ar" id="ar2" disabled=true>No&nbsp;&nbsp;
                    </td>

                    </td>
                    <td>

                    </td>
                </tr>
            </form>

 but if you change the layout you will need to change the selectors to represent the new layout.
