I'm looking for the coding used to cause a radio button selection to enable a shortlist of checkbox inputs. Conversely, if the radio option not related to the checkboxes is selected, they are grayed out (example below). I thought this would be easy to research, but can't seem to find this subject discussed anywhere.

I'm sure the answer is simple. If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it.

Example:


O I don't know what my goals are
O I know what my goals are
□ Go faster
□ Get bigger
□ Be stronger

Thanks in advance.

Using this code it successfully produces the desired result of disabling the checkboxes. However, I am having trouble setting up the page to default to the first radio option with the checkboxes disabled. I realized I have to start out the checkboxes as disabled, however, I cannot seem to make it work. I tried using onload="anotherscript()" with the script setting all checkboxes to disabled. But it doesn't seem to work.

Any thoughts?
