Note: I am an absolute begginer! I have the following script that works fine (it has been adapted from a script that made reference to a Radio Field): - jQuery(document).ready(function($){
var fieldID = 12156;
var showVal = '19489'
var $nextButton = $(".frm_button_submit"); if (($("input[name^='item_meta[" + fieldID + "]']").val() != showVal) && ($("input[type=hidden][name^='item_meta[" + fieldID + "]']").val() != showVal)) {
$nextButton.css('visibility','visible');
} $("input[name^='item_meta[" + fieldID + "]']").change(function(){
if ($("input[name^='item_meta[" + fieldID + "]']").val() == showVal){
$nextButton.css('visibility','hidden');
} else {
$nextButton.css('visibility','visible');
}
});
}); What I want to do is disable the Next button by making reference to a field that has variable data.  In my naivety I assumed that - var showVal could access the field by inserting the field ID.

You said the script works fine. It's overly complicated for what you want to do but throughout the code, you're comparing the value ( val() ) of a field against a field id 19489. You have to compare val() against the value of the radio button, not the field ID.
