asp with radio buttons on forms

P: n/a
Hello all...

I have a page that will be performing a search. The search consists of 3
radio button options. The first 2 will search the entire web through google
and the site as indexed by google. The 3rd option I want to search the site
using MS-Index Server. I can get them to run individually but I'm not sure
how to set the parameters and test for the 3rd radio button (index server)
selected on the page.

I thought that, for example, my Searchinc.asp could have an
If...then...else:

<form action="../gw/incl.idq" method="GET">
<td valign="bottom" align="right" width="100%">
<input type="HIDDEN" name="CiScope" value="/geo_portal/gw">
<input type="HIDDEN" name="CiMaxRecordsPerPage" value="10">
<input type="HIDDEN" name="TemplateName" value="incl">
<input type="HIDDEN" name="CiSort" value="rank[d]">
<input type="HIDDEN" name="HTMLQueryForm" value="../gw/incl.asp">
</td>
<td width="1">
</form>
<%else%>
<!-- SiteSearch Google -->
<form method="get" action="http://www.google.com/custom"
target="google_window">
<%end if%>
<table width="770" height="32" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0"

</td>
<td nowrap>
<input type="hidden" name="domains" value="www.site.com"></input>
<input type="text" name="q" size="15" maxlength="255" value=""></input>
<input type="submit" name="sa" value="Search">
</input> </td>
<td width="342" height="32" nowrap><font size="-1" color="#000000">
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="">
<span class="Verd10pt">Web
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="sitename">

<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="geoworld" checked>
GeoWorld
</span></font><br>
<input type="hidden" name="client" value="pub">

<input type="hidden" name="forid" value="1">
</input>
<input type="hidden" name="channel" value="a number">
</input>
<input type="hidden" name="ie" value="ISO-8859-1">

<input type="hidden" name="oe" value="ISO-8859-1">
</input>
<input type="hidden" name="safe" value="active">
</input>
<input type="hidden" name="cof" value="big number">
</input>
<input type="hidden" name="hl" value="en">
</input>
</td>
<td width="133" nowrap>

The google part works just fine, I can't seem to get the index server piece
to work....

Can anyone give me any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

Forget about what happens based on the radio button selection and just get a
handle on the radio buttons first with a form like this:

test.asp:

<form method="GET" action="test.asp">
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="PutValueHere">Web
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="sitename">GeoPlace
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="geoworld" checked>
</form>

<%

Select Case Request.Querystring("sitesearch")
Case "PutValueHere"
Response.Write "You selected the ""Web"" radio button."
''code here
Case "sitename"
Response.Write "You selected the ""sitename"" radio button."
''code here
Case "geoworld"
Response.Write "You selected the ""geoworld"" radio button."
''code here
End Select
%>
