Getting a radiobutton checked in IE

I have a script that selects a radio button according to certain preferences, like this:

function fillinprod(prev_value) {
for (i=0; i<document.form1.product.length; i++)
if (document.form1.product[i].value == prev_value )
document.form1.product[i].defaultChecked = true;
document.form1.product[0].defaultChecked = true;

What it does is that if a previous product is selected (taken from a PHP script), it'll fill in that, else it'll default to the first product in the list. It works in Moz, but not in IE.

Anyone know how to do it?

I think you need to use .checked rather then .defaultChecked. I believe defaultChecked is readonly will you can read/write the checked property.

Hmm... Nope, won't work.

[Edit]Doh, sorry. It does work, I just wrote Checked instead of checked. Damn case-sensitive thingamajingies... =P

Ah well. Thanks for the help! :)[/edit]

I believe:


may be what you are looking for. Be aware your HTML tags must have values specified for the individual selections.
