CUSTOM GROUP VALIDATION TextBoxes / RadioButton Lists

Hi Experts,

I've a list of about 20 words that I need people to be able to select their top 5 from and rank them in order of importance

I began with a checkboxlist which restricts selection to 5 but this would then require people to type their five words seperately in order to provide the ranking.

I would prefer to list the words and provide a textbox or radiobuttonlist for each and ask users to simply rank their top five from the given list.  Clearly though they need to only be able to rank 5 of the possible 20 listed items and of those 5 each one must have a unique value from 1- 5.

Anyone able to advise?

Hi The _Big_Daddy! (great username...the mind boggles!)

Thank you for this, I did wonder about using listboxes, unfortunately yesterday was sucha tight deadline in the end I had only time to glance at your answer before deciding I'd have to take a quick and easy approach. However if you can bear with me for a few days I would like to try that out, I havent used listboxes before so it would be good to learn.

no problem. , I'll be around :)

when i say list boxes, i mean select boxes that have the "multiple" attribute applied to them

Thanks,

Oh ok yes I see, not asp:ListBoxes...I just assumed thats what you meant because they work in that way, presumably either would probably work just a case of validating client vs server side.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
