I am so stupid sometimes......

I have two pretty much identical forms on the page concerned, one for adding
a record, the other for editing - I was adding on-events to one and testing
the effect on the other form!

This works now;

<input name="group_name" class="MedInput" type="text" value="<?php echo
$myrow["group_name"]; ?>" size="50" maxlength="50"
<div id="progressbar2" class="progress"></div>

Which if anyone wants the source is a routine that does a text counter
bargraph / submit disable until required field(s) populated / disable after
