check if user clicked on any radio button

I have a form with different radio button groups (ex. basic, collision, theft, etc...), and each has two options (y/n), and I want to perform a subroutine when the user CLICKS ON ANY of the groups. I wouldn't like to check FOR EACH PAIR OF VALUES IN A GROUP.
I have GBASIC (group name)
GCOLLISION (group name)
GTHEFT (group name)

How can I accomplish this ?


I am using CS3 and AS2

You're not being very clear in what you want. Which flash language is this? The RadioButton class does have an event for when it is clicked on (To provide specifics I need to know if this is AS3, AS2, or MXML (And if so which Flex SDK)).
If you want to perform your check when the form is submitted, just use a logical or on the options using the selected property of the RadioButtons and the || operator.
I can see you are using CS3. The best way you may need to use RadioButtonGroup

Check these examples


import fl.controls.RadioButton;
import fl.controls.RadioButtonGroup;

var myRadioGroup:RadioButtonGroup = new RadioButtonGroup("options");
myRadioGroup.addEventListener(Event.CHANGE, changeHandler);

var radio1:RadioButton = new RadioButton();
radio1.label = "Option A";
radio1.value = "optionA";
radio1.group = myRadioGroup;
radio1.move(10, 10);

var radio2:RadioButton = new RadioButton();
radio2.label = "Option B";
radio2.value = "optionB";
radio2.group = myRadioGroup;
radio2.move(10, 30);

var radio3:RadioButton = new RadioButton();
radio3.label = "Option C";
radio3.value = "optionC";
radio3.group = myRadioGroup;
radio3.move(10, 50);

function changeHandler(event:Event):void {
    var rbg:RadioButtonGroup = event.target as RadioButtonGroup;
    if (rbg.selectedData != null) {
    } else {
        trace("no value specified.");
