View Full Version : How to change the checked item on a radio type with javascript

10-13-2005, 03:41 PM
I am trying to update the checked radio item with javascript. I need to do this after the HTML page has been written and therefore am using javascript.

Basically I have a javascript function like this:

Function updatewin(){

Var index;

Index = document.main.index.value = 1;

Mywin.document.form.radio[index].checked = true;


When I run this in IE I get an error index is null or not an object.

If I try hardcoding 1 in the square brackets it works fine and selects the correct radio button.

Any ideas?

JS does not support values on both the left and right hand side of an equals sign. It IS case-sensitive. Index != index.

var index = 1;
Mywin.document.form.radio[index].checked = true;
