    Assign Radio Buttons to Variables then window.location

    I have two different groups of radio buttons inside of a form.
    When the submit button is clicked I would like to pass the "value" of the radio buttons to variables, then use the variables to call a new page via window.location

    Sample Form

    <form>
    <Input type = 'Radio' Name ='firstp' value= 'starturl'>1
    <Input type = 'Radio' Name ='firstp' value= 'starturl1'>2
    <Input type = 'Radio' Name ='firstp' value= 'starturl2'>3

    <br

    <Input type = 'Radio' Name ='secondp' value= 'endurl'>1
    <Input type = 'Radio' Name ='secondp' value= 'endurl1'>2
    <Input type = 'Radio' Name ='secondp' value= 'endurl2'>3

    <input type="button" value="New Page" style="height: 40px; width: 180px; font-size: 17px;" onclick="move()" />
    </form>


    JAVASCRIPT(or lack there of)

    <script language="JavaScript">
    function move() {

    var beginURL = value from radio firstp
    var endURL = value from radio secondp


    window.location = beginURL + endURL
    }
    //-->
    </script>


    Of course I am new to javascript and I am just trying to explain in text what I am looking to do with this javascript code above, as I am little confused at this point.

    I will have multiple pages created that will have the exact names as the beginURL + endURL.
    Example if 2nd radio box was selected in both sections this page would load page starturl1endurl1.php

    Also thoughts on whether Javascript or PHP is best suited for this?
    Thanks

    This is a simple task, JavaScript is enough. I would suggest not using the name move for a function. There is a global function with the same name window.move().
    Code:
    function radioValue(name)
    {
        var group = document.getElementsByName(name);
    
        if(group !== null) {
            for (var i = 0, l = group.length; i < l; ++i) {
                if (group[i].checked)
                    return group[i].value;
            }
        }
        return false;
    }
    function goto()
    {
        var val1 = radioValue('firstp'),
            val2 = radioValue('secondp');
    
        if (val1 === false || val2 === false)
            return;
        // build a valid URL ex. "./webpage.php"
        window.location.href = './' + val1 + val2 + '.php';
    }

    Uhm... this might be a REALLY stupid question... but why are you wasting time adding javascript to what should be a simple FORM[get]?!?

    Are we forgetting the unwritten rule of JavaScript or something? "If you can't make the page work without JavaScript FIRST, you likely have no business adding JavaScript to it."
