    Form Validation (Radio Buttons...)


    Hi Guys,

    I have created a very simple form with a text box and radio buttons. I am using javascript to echo my php in a div but it won't allow me to see which radio button was selected! Nightmare... :-(

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <title>Untitled Document</title> </head>  <body>  <form id="testForm" method="post" >  <input type="text" name="info" >info<br> <input type="radio" name="sex" value="male">Male<br> <input type="radio" name="sex" value="female">Female  <input type="submit" value="Submit"> </form>   <div id="response"> dafadf          	<div class="clearer"></div><!--clearer-->                       </div><!--response-->   <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="js/testForm.js"></script>   </body> </html>
    Code:
     testForm.js file  $(document).ready(function() { 	$("#testForm").submit(function() 	{ 		 		var sex_Js = $("#sex").val(); 		 		var info_Js = $("#info").val(); 	 		 		$("#response").load("../testPhp.php",{ 		 		sex:sex_Js, 		 		info:info_Js 	 		}); 		 	return false; 	}); 	 });
    PHP Code:
     <?php       $nameField_PHP $_POST['sex'];           $info_PHP $_POST['info'];               echo $info_PHP;         echo "<br />" $nameField_PHP;           ?>
    Why isn't the javascript sending the radio buttons value through to the PHP?

    Many thanks.
