Hi, I'm stuck on figuring out some jQuery validation...

I want to be able to have a text field ONLY required if a radio has been selected... can't quite figure it out....


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://jquery.bassistance.de/validate/lib/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://jquery.bassistance.de/validate/lib/jquery.metadata.js" ></script> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://jquery.bassistance.de/validate/jquery.validate.js" ></script> 

<script type="text/javascript">
// only for demo purposes
$.validator.setDefaults({
	submitHandler: function() {
		alert("submitted!");
	}
});
	
$.metadata.setType("attr", "validate");

$(document).ready(function() {
	$("#form1").validate();
});
</script>

<form id="form1" method="get" action="">
  <input type="radio" id="gender" value="m" name="gender" /> Male<br>
  <input type="radio" id="gender" value="f" name="gender" />Female<br>
  <input type="text" name="txt" id="txt" validate="required:'#gender:selected'" /><br>
  <input class="submit" type="submit" value="Submit"/><br>
</form>
