Help with Condition Validation...

Hi Guys,

I'm new to WA Validation and a little lost, I have a simple form - (Update Form)

With

<select name="accounttype"> m/a
<input type="text" id="dmxCalendar_1> Date input
<input type="text" id="dmxCalendar_2> Date Input
<input name="FreeTrial" type="checkbox" id="FreeTrial" value="Y" />

The basis is that the following form elements should be enables and validated if accounttype = m or disabled and not validated if account type = a

Enabled if accounttype = m
dmxCalendar_1
dmxCalendar_2
FreeTrial

Validated - Required if accounttype = m
dmxCalendar_1
dmxCalendar_2

Disabled and no validation if accounttype = a
dmxCalendar_1
dmxCalendar_2
FreeTrial

Hope that makes sense.....

Now I've got to a certain point where I have applied the validations, but can't see how to apply them to the select item as a variable... but not sure how to do it.........

my code is below...

<!--

theString = theString.substring(0,theString.length-1);
}
return theString;
}
