I have a few groups of radio buttons that I need to evaluate using JavaScript before i submit it to another page using the GET method in my code.
the question I have is that my radio buttons are initally unchecked how do i go about evaluating my form to find out if the client checked one of my radio buttons.
here is my code so far:

Could i possibly just have a lot of small forms for each individual group of radio buttons?

Unlike most other form elments, the reference to the radio buttons by name evaluates to a collection rather than a single element.
So in your page document.pro1.classes references a collection of the radio elements named 'classes'. You can loop through this collection looking for which one has a 'checked' attribute set to true.
hth,

Thanks for the help! i did not know about the checked attribute. That makes everything clear.
