Hi guys,

I am trying achieve something quite simple, I am trying to enable a form submit button only when a radio button [that says something along the lines, I accept terms..] has been selected, my code is below, but for some reason it doesnt work

I've searched through numerous forums/posts and cant see what the problem is.

Any ideas? Your thoughts will be much appreicated.

Don't name anything "submit".

use "onselect" is wrong.
you should use "onfocus" or "onclick"

Thank you very much guys,

Changed the button name from "submit" to "button123" and onSelect changed to onClick, and everything works like a charm.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
