Hello,

I'm having trouble getting customized radio buttons to work properly with Ajax. I've finally gotten the images to display correctly and to change state when clicked. What I need is for them to kick out to a script named 'poll.js' on 'onclick,' so as to call a script named 'poll_vote.php,' which returns the appropriate response. I'm using scripts I found on the Internet and had it working properly with standard radio buttons until I tried adding the custom images. Is this possible? I'm not very good with JavaScript. I've tried to pick apart the code but am lost.

Here's the code. Sorry it's so long.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,

Here's poll.js:


[CODE]
var xmlHttp;

function getVote(int)
{
xmlHttp=GetXmlHttpObject();
if (xmlHttp==null)
{
alert ("Browser does not support HTTP Request");
return;
}
var url="poll_vote.php";
url=url+"?vote="+int;
url=url+"&sid="+Math.random();
xmlHttp.onreadystatechange=stateChanged;
xmlHttp.open("GET",url,true);
xmlHttp.send(null);
}

function stateChanged()
{
if (xmlHttp.readyState==4 || xmlHttp.readyState=="complete")
{
document.getElementById("poll").
innerHTML=xmlHttp.responseText;
}
}

function GetXmlHttpObject()
{
var objXMLHttp=null;
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
{
objXMLHttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
}
else if (window.ActiveXObject)
{
objXMLHttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
}
return objXMLHttp;
}
