Multiple Search Options - Radio Buttons Instead Of Drop Down List

  1. Mar 26, 2007 #1
    The tutorial on how to make a search form with multiple search options was excellent!


    However, is it possible to use radio buttons instead of a drop-down list?Can someone be kind enough to show me the code for it?

    Million thanks.

    You can do for example:
    Code (Text):

        <script language="JavaScript">eng = 'http://www.google.com/search?q=';</script>  
        <input type="text" id="searchterms">
        <input type="button" value="Search" onload="" onclick="window.location = eng + escape(document.getElementById('searchterms').value); return false;">
        <br />Search:
        <input type="radio" onclick="eng = this.value;" checked name="sengines" value="http://www.google.com/search?q=" />Google
        <input type="radio" onclick="eng = this.value;" name="sengines" value="http://www.altavista.com/web/results?q=" />Alta Vista
        <input type="radio" onclick="eng = this.value;" name="sengines" value="http://www.dogpile.com/info.dogpl/search/web/" />Dogpile
        <input type="radio" onclick="eng = this.value;" name="sengines" value="http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=" />Yahoo!
