activate a radio button using Java Script

Dear Experts:

The following java script checks the checkbox "My_CheckBox" on my current acrobat form

if (!="Off") this.getField("MyCheckBox").checkThisBox(0, true) ;

How is this script to be tweaked if not a checkbox is to be checked but a radio button named 'MyRadioButton' Export Value = "LED_Lights"

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Have you tried setting the value of the field to the value you want selected.

this.getField("MyRadioButton").value = 'LED_Lights';
