How to get the value of selected checkbox and the value of input text for that checkbox?

I have a list of check-boxes along side with input text for each checkbox. If the checkbox is not checked I disable the input text which works fine. I want to get the value of the checkbox that is checked and the input that was given by the user for that specific checkbox. I can get the value of checked checkbox the problem is getting the value of input text.

For Example:

  1. CHECKBOX - if not checked disable input text

  2. INPUTTEXT - if checkbox checked user be able to enter data.

How can I accomplish this. Your help appreciated in advanced

Here is my


Use Like this

// Returns an array with values of the selected (checked) checkboxes in "frm"
function getSelectedChbox(frm) {
  var selchbox = [];        // array that will store the value of selected checkboxes

  // gets all the input tags in frm, and their number
  var inpfields = frm.getElementsByTagName('input');
  var nr_inpfields = inpfields.length;

  // traverse the inpfields elements, and adds the value of selected (checked) checkbox in selchbox
  for(var i=0; i<nr_inpfields; i++) {
    if(inpfields[i].type == 'checkbox' && inpfields[i].checked == true) {
    var textboxVal = document.getElementById(inpfields[i].id+"code").value;
    var obj = {checkbox:inpfields[i].value,textbox:textboxVal};
  return selchbox;
  /* Test this function */
// When click on #langtest, alert the selected values
document.getElementById('langtest').onclick = function(){
  var selchb = getSelectedChbox(this.form);     // gets the array returned by getSelectedChbox()

//Check if checkbox is checked, if not checked disable input text
 document.getElementById('html').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('htmlcode').disabled = !this.checked;
  document.getElementById('css').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('csscode').disabled = !this.checked;
  document.getElementById('javascript').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('javascriptcode').disabled = !this.checked;
  document.getElementById('php').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('phpcode').disabled = !this.checked;
  document.getElementById('python').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('pythoncode').disabled = !this.checked;
  document.getElementById('net').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('netcode').disabled = !this.checked;
  document.getElementById('mysql').onchange = function() {
    document.getElementById('mysqlcode').disabled = !this.checked;
