check whether a checkbox is checked and then perform actions using javascripting

Dear Experts:

I got a single Checkbox named 'MyCheckBox' on an acrobat form.

I would like to run a javascript on that CheckBox with the following requirments:

If MyCheckBox gets checked, the script should ...
... check whether a radio button "MyRadionButton" with the export value 'Sliding Door' is activated ... if yes ...
the following actions are to be performed:
this.getField("sl2").readonly = false ;
this.getField("sl2").required = true ;
this.getField("sl2").fillColor = color.white ;

... else MyCheckbox gets unchecked
... do other stuff

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

Regards, Andreas

This goes in the exit event of the checkbox
// If a checkbox value is Off - it is not checked otherwise it is set to the
// value of the CB.
if (this.getField('MyCheckbox').value != 'Off') {
  if (this.getField('MyRadionButton') == 'Sliding Door') {
    this.getField("sl2").readonly = false ;
    this.getField("sl2").required = true ;
    this.getField("sl2").fillColor = color.white ;
else {
  // this is where you handle the checked off code
