I see that Shawn's suggested radio buttons will do just fine. I hadn't
thought about that. Dummy me.
But the real problem I have is to pass a form input value to a variable.
For example:
<input type="text" name="titleIN" size="52" />
<input type="radio" name="choice" value="$titleIN" />
How can I pass the "text" input to a variable that could be used by the
"radio" button?
The idea is to have several inputs for a search page with the inputs
limited by the radio button to one choice of several inputs. If I can
get the input to a variable, I can then manipulate it to do a query for
the search. :-\
Hope this is understandable?
