I'm trying to validate a form with Javascript. I dit it with a select field and it works good but need help to validate with a radio buttom.

This my code:

## JAVASCRIPT ##

<script type="text/javascript">

  function checkForm(form)
  {

    var selectCivilStatus = form.select_1.options[form.select_1.selectedIndex].value;


    if(selectCivilStatus == "") {
        alert("Error: Marital Status is not selected");
        form.select_1.focus();
        return false;
    }

  }

</script>


## HTML ##


Civil Status:

<select size="1" name="select_1">
<option VALUE="">SELECT</option>
<option VALUE="Single">Single</option>
<option VALUE="Married">Married</option>
<option VALUE="Divorced">Divorced</option>
</select>

I need to validate this one with JavaScript too:

Bonus Payment:

<input type="radio" name="radio_1" value="Yes"> Yes
<input type="radio" name="radio_1" value="No"> No

##########

Please help. Thank you so much!

try below code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<meta charset="utf-8">
	<script type="text/javascript">
		function checkForm(form)
		{
			var selectCivilStatus = form.select_1.options[form.select_1.selectedIndex].value;

			if(selectCivilStatus == "")
			{
				alert("Error: Marital Status is not selected");
				form.select_1.focus();
				return false;
			}

			if (!form.bonusPayment_Yes.checked && !form.bonusPayment_No.checked)

				alert("Error: Bonus Payment is not selected");
				return false;
			}
		}
	</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="Form1" id="Form1">
Civil Status:
<select size="1" name="select_1">
<option VALUE="">SELECT</option>
<option VALUE="Single">Single</option>
<option VALUE="Married">Married</option>
<option VALUE="Divorced">Divorced</option>
</select>

Bonus Payment:

<input type="radio" id="bonusPayment_Yes" name="radio_1" value="Yes"> Yes
<input type="radio" id="bonusPayment_No" name="radio_1" value="No"> No

<input type="submit" value="Submit" onclick="checkForm(document.forms['Form1']);" />
