    Checked radio button triggering verification of other fields

    Hello,

    I am working with a form in which I want a text field to be required ONLY if a certain radio button (with a value of "yes") is checked.

    Here is what I have so far: verification for ensuring that one of the radio buttons is checked and verification to ensure that the related field is filled out.

    However I can't get one to be contingent upon the other. Below is my code (also attached in txt format if you prefer).

    Please help...
    Thanks!
    Jennifer

    escrowOption = i

    I'm not sure if I'm doing what you needed to be done, but I think I did. I couldn't figure out how to do it with radio buttons, but if they are just yes/no, why not just have a checkbox marked yes? Then they can choose yes/no through that. Here is the code (very simple and ugly in a browser), I'll also upload a text file.

    ------------------------------------
    <html>
    <head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function validate()
    {
    x=document.myform
    chk=x.check.checked
    txt=x.textf.value
    if (chk)
    {
    if (txt)
    {
    return true
    }
    else
    {
    alert("You must enter text")
    return false
    }
    }
    }
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form name="myform" action="test.htm" onsubmit="return validate()">
    <input type="checkbox" name="check">Yes<BR>
    If yes, enter a value:
    <input type="text" name="textf">
    <input type="submit" value="Send input">
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>
    ---------------------------------

    Hope this helps!

    You can change the value of another field (If this is what you want!) by clicking a radio button.

    <input type="radio" name="radioset" onClick="form.otherField.value = 'whatever';">

    I am not sure if that is exactly what you want, but I hope it helps!
