& On selecting the second radio button2 only One textbox is

displayed (textbox1) & another one (textbox2) get hidden .

what i am trying to do is that when radio button1 is selected

& so two textboxes are displayed,

then Onsubmit throw alert for two textboxes seperately , to

Enter value in them if this text boxes are blank .

But if radio button2 is selected then throw alert for Entering

value for only one text box (textbox1) if its value is blank ,

& Skip alert throw for the another one hidden textbox(textbox2) .

please suggest me how i can achieve this using JS .

As usual it would have helped if you'd shown the existing code, but (assuming you're using the CSS display property):

if( element.value == "" && element.style.display != "none" )
alert( ... );
