How do you set the selection of the radio button that work both for IE and Netscape.
<form name="forname" action="any.do">
<input type="radio" name="obj" id="objID" value="0"></html:radio >
<input type="radio" name="obj" id="objID" value="1"></html:radio >
<input type="radio" name="obj" id="objID" value="2"></html:radio >
</form >

scenario: current selected radio is 0, i want to change the selection to 2 "changeRadio(2)"
thanks

In the HTML or under Javascript control? And what version of Netscape? The answers you'll get will vary greatly with these answers.

The reference document.formname.obj will reference the radio group. This is a collection of the radio buttons.
So the following:

will set the second radio button as the selected button. (Note that this is an array index and has nothing to do with the values of the buttons).
hth,
bear
P.S. I know that this will work in all modern browsers.
