            for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {
              if (inputs[i].checked) {
                return inputs[i].value;

          function onSubmit() {
            var id = get_radio_value();
            alert("selected input is: " + id);
        <form onsubmit="onSubmit();">
            <input name="selected" value="1" type="radio"/>1<br/>
            <input name="selected" value="2" type="radio"/>2<br/>
