View Full Version : Need Radio Button Help ASAP!!!

03-27-2009, 01:56 AM
Ok so I am trying to get this page up and running but I can't get the Javascript to work. Can somebody please take a look at my page and explain exactly what to do? I am new to Javascript. Please don't mind the song list, they are just there temporarily.

The exact instructions are on the page at the bottom in the <p> tag named "instructions". Thanks in advance for the help. I really need to get this finished asap!

Seeing as this is your first post, welcome to the forums. Being that it is your first post, I strongly recommend you read the 'how to post a JavaScript question (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=2090)' sticky thread. Pay special attention to #3 on that list. Also note that putting "ASAP!!!!" in your subject doesn't garner much respect with people, and dumping what is obviously a homework assignment even less.

At any rate, what you want to do is use the DOM to alter the elements on the page using an onclick event handler. I suggest searching for some tutorials (http://www.lmgtfy.com?q="DOM+tutorial") and doing plenty of reading / troubleshooting. When you have some actual code that you want help debugged, let us know.
