Style Drop Downs - Check Boxes And Radio Buttons?

Jul 6, 2010

Is there a good library available (jQuery or stand-alone) that allows you to customize the troublesome form elements that aren't very receptive to CSS across browsers?

I was looking to try to match drop downs, radio buttons and check boxes with the same look and feel as everything else.

Choosing To Use Radio Buttons Or Check Boxes?

Apr 26, 2009

When it one better than the other? I need customers to choose a media type for a catalogue, booklet or CD/DVD. I would rather have the customer choose what they wish rather than force an initial choice. I have been toying with radio buttons but trying to validate them and keep them off initially is quite difficult. Would I be better off using check boxes instead? If so, how do we determine which check box has been selected?

Using Visible/hidden Radio Buttons - Create Questionnaire Style Series Of Radio Buttons

Jul 13, 2010

I'm trying to create a questionnaire style series of radio buttons which are hidden and then a different set of radio buttons displayed depending on the previous answer. eg

Q1 Is it a man? (if select yes then display)

Q2 Is he called John? (if no then display)

Q3 Is he called Gary? and so on...

I've been testing using the code below but wondered if anyone had any ideas on how this could be done easily?

Radio And Check Boxes Problems

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to create a type of search engine. There are two radio buttons at the top, in the middle there is a text box, with the search button next to it, and at the bottom there are four check boxes. When the form loads one of the two radio buttons are selected as the default, what i want is when someone clicks on one of the four checkboxes, one of the two radio buttons are deselected. The user is able to select all 4 checkboxes if he/she wishes, but if they click on a check box, the radio button, depending on which one is
select is deselected. Sorry if thats confusing, I don't know much javascript, so a in depth example would be nice, here is my code so far....

Test Out A Basic Xhtml Form Using Radio Buttons And Text Boxes?

Radio Buttons Change Html Display Style (IE)

Jun 17, 2010

In an html form, I want a certain field to be invisible when "no" is checked and visible when "yes" is checked.

This is my code:


<form action="pageName.html" method="post" name="formName">
<input name="radioBool" type="radio" value="1" onchange="dispField('textInput');" />yes


This seems to work perfectly across all browsers except for IE (latest version).

In IE the only problem is that the radio buttons have to lose focus before the span will change to visible. I would like the "specify" field to display immediately after the radio button changes to yes, rather than waiting for the buttons to lose focus.

Same Name For Radio Buttons & Drop Down List

Aug 31, 2009

I am rying to give same name to the radio button options and those in the drop down list.

It should look like in the picture below.


It is obvious that the input names of all options (of radio buttons & in the dropdown list) should be the same. E.g. <input name="find">

JQuery :: Check If All Radio Buttons Are Checked?

May 20, 2010

I have a form with x questions (the questions come from a database, so the number of questions is variable). Each question needs to be answered with a number form 1 to 10, I do this using radio buttons. The name if those radio buttons is "name" followed by the id of the question in the database. Because the name is variable and the number of questions is variable, how can I check if all the questions are answered i.e. one radio button must be checked for every group of radio buttons.

JQuery :: Check Whether All Radio Buttons Have Been Selected?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a form that will dynamically place a number of radio button groups on the page. I don't want the user to be able to submit the form until a value has been chosen for ALL fields. I have hidden the submit button with the though of showing it again once ALL fields have been checked. My code so far...

$(document).ready(function () {
//Hide the submit button
//Change background of question to show clearly which questions have been answered


This doesn't work as expected. It shows the submit button when any of the radio buttons are clicked.

Drop-down (select) Elements And Radio Buttons

Feb 23, 2006

On a form on one of my pages I have two <select> elements, and each one
is paired up with a radio button. The idea is to choose an item from
one list or the other and select the radio button of the list you want
to use.

I'm using JavaScript to automatically select the radio button
corresponding to a list when you click on the list (using the onclick
event handler). Is that the best event to change on, or should this
behavior be triggered on the onChange event - so if they don't change
the value they won't have to re-select the other radio button?

Get Radio Button Validation For Different Sets Of Radio Buttons That Simply Contains Yes & No Buttons

Nov 28, 2009

I'm trying to get a radio button validation for different sets of radio buttons that simply contains Yes & No buttons.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

Question 1: if Yes, then (Alert 1) if No, then (Alert 2) (if Yes, then Question 2 appears) *Up to here I'm happy- can't figure out the rest*

Question 2: if Yes, then (Alert 1) if No, then (Alert 2) (if Yes, then Question 3 appears)

I need the Alerts to be swapped from this point*

Question 3: if Yes, then (Alert 2) if No, then (Alert 1) (if NO, then Question 4 appears)

Identical for Question 5, and for Last Question 6 Alerts swapped back again.)

Here's the script that I managed to piece together:

DOM Drop Downs

Mar 30, 2004

Ok, I just tried to make this post and got logged out when I hit preview, so this time around it's gonna be much shorter as my patience has run out.

...Over at there is a sweet little bit of code that uses the DOM to make dropdown menus.

I have altered the code (see below) to make the menus appear on the first mousover instead of the onClick event.

However, they never go away. I'm trying to figure out how make the last menu open disappear after a short delay. I've already tried this


setTimeout(' = "hidden";',2000);
However, it doesn't work. The delayed code events pile up on each other if menus are continually moused over and out. (Say the user can't decide what menu they're looking for and runs the mouse left...then right...then left...)

The result is that after the 2000ms the menus close instantly....

* menuDropdown.js - implements an dropdown menu based on a HTML list
* Author: Dave Lindquist (

var currentMenu = null;

if (!document.getElementById)
document.getElementById = function() { return null; }

function initializeMenu(menuId, actuatorId,position) {
var menu = document.getElementById(menuId);
var actuator = document.getElementById(actuatorId);

if (menu == null || actuator == null) return;

if (window.opera) return; // I'm too tired

actuator.onmouseover = function() {
if (currentMenu == null) {
else if(currentMenu) { = "hidden";
return false;

actuator.onblur = function() {
setTimeout(' = "hidden";',2000);
return false;}}

actuator.showMenu = function(position) {
if (document.all){ = this.offsetLeft + 80 - position + "px";
else { = this.offsetLeft - position + "px";
} = this.offsetTop + this.offsetHeight + 2 + "px"; = "visible";
currentMenu = menu;

Add & Delete Drop-downs

Sep 6, 2005

i have a soccer-site, on which of course,
can be kept track of played matches.
Now the admin has to be able to set the number
of goals, and then select who scored what goal.

I want a system where one can put a number in
a textfield (NaN would return an error).
Say the admin enters &#393;'. Then three dropdown
lists appear below that field, in them are the
If he turns &#393;' (goals) into &#392;', the lowest one
has to be deleted, but the upper two have to stay,
with an unchanged (already selected) value ...

Preferrably cross browser. I just can't seem to
figure out, i've tried loads of innerHTML and
document.write(), both didn't give me what i
wanted (yet).

Intelligent Drop Downs

Jul 14, 2005

what i'm looking to do is have a drop down menu, where when an option is selected it displays a description elsewhere on the screen and opens up another drop down menu along side the first one, then i'd like the second one to do the same as the first and finally i'd like the third one to just display a description.

but i'm not sure how to do it? javascript? if so what's it called so i can look into it/a tut on it.

so drop down 1 is either poetry or prose
down down 2 is for poetry
+ narrative
+ nature
+ romantic

but for prose it's
+ fiction
+ non-fiction

but that's not just it, if you select poetry in drop down one, i want it to display a description (that's in the description="" of the option) and i want that the same for each different menu, though to appear in different position for each menu Code:

Can't Open Drop Downs In Same Window

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to create a webpage and it would be obvious to anyone who
reads my source code (it's a mess) that I created it using a template.
I know almost nothing about webpages, but am happy with all but a few
bugs in my page.

I have read many posts about opening drop-downs in new windows, and
have spent hours looking over my source code to see what I have done

My links open in the same window like I want, but ALL of my drop-downs
open in a new window!
