Radio Button Syntax with SecurityAssist

I need some help with radio button syntax. I have a form that has radio buttons to specify shirt size. Where in the code do I enter the values of S M L XL and XXL? Here is the code that I have:

<tr>
<th>Shirt Size:</th>
<td>
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" /> S
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" /> M
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" /> L
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" /> XL
</td>
</tr>

Thank you for your help.

The value should be added to the value attribute:


<tr>
<th>Shirt Size:</th>
<td>
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="S" /> S
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="M" /> M
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="L" /> L
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="XL" /> XL
</td>
</tr>

Thanks for this info as it kinda worked.
I updated the radio button info as you suggested and now when I use the form it does write to the database. However when I go back and look at the record from the participant_data_Prifile page, all of the data repopulates on the screen except for the info that I checked in the radio buttons. The following is how I made the updates:

<th>Shirt Size:</th>
<td><input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"S": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" />
[ Small ]
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"M": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" />
[ Medium ]
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"L": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" />
[ Large ]
<input type="radio" name="shirtsize_1" id="shirtsize_1" value="<%=String(WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value==null?"XL": (WAATKparticipantdata.Fields.Item("shirtsize_1").Value)).replace(/"/g, '&quot;')%>" />
[ XLarge ]</td>
Did I not do this correctly?

No, you should not be using the recordset values in the value for the radio buttons.



For each radio button, click the dynamic button in the property inspector, make sure the correct radio button is selected in the drop down list, then click the lightning bolt next to select value equal to and select the shirtsize_1 column fro the recordset.

I'm still not getting it right. I think I'm missing something as I don't know where on the property inspector do I tell it that the value for the first radio button is "S", the value for the second radio button is "M", the value for the third radio button is "L"...?

You set the value in the Checked Value field of the property inspector.

OK, that ended up being way too easy. All of the extra code that SecurityAssist created threw me off track. Thank you very much.
