Experts-

Can someone help me with ensuring that at least one check box is selected?

<td width="110"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="windows" value="Windows" /><label for="windows">Windows</label></td>
<td width="130"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="gutterhelmet" value="Gutter Helmet" /><label for="gutterhelmet">Gutter Helmet</label></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="110"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="roofing" value="Roofing" /><label for="roofing">Roofing</label></td>
<td width="130"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="icedefense" value="Ice Defense" /><label for="icedefense">Ice Defense</label></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="110"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="siding" value="Siding" /><label for="siding">Siding</label></td>
<td width="130"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="drenergy" value="Dr. Energy Saver" /><label for="drenergy">Dr. Energy Saver</label></td>

Any help would be appreaicted

Thanks
Nick

here's a good approach if you have the option to use jQuery and the validator plug-in:

<script>
var count=0;
function checkBoxValid()
{
		input= document.getElementsByTagName("input");

		for(i=0;i<input.length;i++)
		{
			if(input[i].type =='checkbox' && input[i].checked)
			{
			 count++;
			}

		}

		if(count == 0)
		{
		  alert("please select atleast once check box")
		  return false;
		}

}
</script>

<form id='frm' onsubmit=' return checkBoxValid()'>
<td width="110"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="windows" value="Windows" /><label for="windows">Windows</label></td>
<td width="130"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="gutterhelmet" value="Gutter Helmet" /><label for="gutterhelmet">Gutter Helmet</label></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="110"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="roofing" value="Roofing" /><label for="roofing">Roofing</label></td>

Big- Thanks, but I am unable to use jQuery.

chaituu-  Thank you!  The code works perfectly.  One last question, is there a way for me to remove where the pop up says, "The page at ....." and only have it say Please select at least one check box?

THanks
Nick
