    i am trying to have a radio button choice and then a text field submitted under the same post. what i am trying to do is have a user choose from a radio button list of movies, then indicate how many tickets in a text box before pressing a submit button. i want the captured information to be sent via POST to a different page. i cannot figure out how to do these together.

          <INPUT type="radio" name="movies" value="X-Men Origins: Wolverine"> X-Men Origins: Wolverine <BR>
          <INPUT type="radio" name="movies" value="Star Trek"> Star Trek <BR>

    Hello,

    As per what I understand the following code shall help you.

    Code:
    
    <form action="wherever.php" action="POST">
     <input type="radio" name="whatever" value="TB1"><input type="text" name="text1">
     <br /><br />
     <input type="submit" value="Try it">
    </form>
    
    
    A more advanced one where the value submitted is same as the same in the text box.

    Code:
    
    <input type="radio" name="whatever" value="TB1" id="a"><input type="text" name="text1" id="b">
    <br /><br />
    <button onclick="send();">Send the details</button>
    
    <script>
    
    // Scripting File
    // JScript File
    
    function $(id) { return document.getElementById(id); }
    function reset() { $("a").value=$("b").value; }
    function send(){
    
    document.write('<form action="wherever.php" action="POST" id="frm">
     <input type="radio" name="whatever" value="' + $("a").value + '">
     <input type="text" name="text1" value="' + $("b").value + '">
    </form>');
    
    window.clearInterval(timer);
    $("frm").submit();
    
    }
    
    var timer = window.setInterval("reset();", 100);
    
    </script>
    
    
    Regards,
    Akshit Soota
