How to get value of selected radio button

0 votes

I want to get the selected value from a group of radio buttons.

Here's my HTML:

<div id="rates">
  <input type="radio" id="r1" name="rate" value="Fixed Rate"> Fixed Rate
  <input type="radio" id="r2" name="rate" value="Variable Rate"> Variable Rate
  <input type="radio" id="r3" name="rate" value="Multi Rate" checked="checked"> Multi Rate  
</div>

Here's my js:

var rates = document.getElementById('rates').value;
var rate_value;
if(rates =='Fixed Rate'){
    rate_value = document.getElementById('r1').value;
    
}else if(rates =='Variable Rate'){
    rate_value = document.getElementById('r2').value;
    
}else if(rates =='Multi Rate'){
    rate_value = document.getElementById('r3').value;
}  

document.getElementById('results').innerHTML = rate_value;

I keep getting undefined.

Hello @kartik,

Use this:

var rates = document.getElementById('rates').value;

The rates element is a div, so it won't have a value. This is probably where the undefined is coming from.

The checked property will tell you whether the element is selected:

if (document.getElementById('r1').checked) {
  rate_value = document.getElementById('r1').value;
}

Hope it helps!!
Thank You!!
