html if not - How to check whether a checkbox is checked in jQuery?





15 Answers

Use jQuery's is() function:

if($("#isAgeSelected").is(':checked'))
    $("#txtAge").show();  // checked
else
    $("#txtAge").hide();  // unchecked
onclick javascript uncheck

I need to check the checked property of a checkbox and perform an action based on the checked property using jQuery.

For example, if the age checkbox is checked, then I need to show a textbox to enter age, else hide the textbox.

But the following code returns false by default:

if ($('#isAgeSelected').attr('checked'))
{
    $("#txtAge").show();
}
else
{
    $("#txtAge").hide();
}

How do I successfully query the checked property?




jQuery 1.6+

$('#isAgeSelected').prop('checked')

jQuery 1.5 and below

$('#isAgeSelected').attr('checked')

Any version of jQuery

// Assuming an event handler on a checkbox
if (this.checked)

Use:

<input type="checkbox" name="planned_checked" checked id="planned_checked"> Planned

$("#planned_checked").change(function() {
    if($(this).prop('checked')) {
        alert("Checked Box Selected");
    } else {
        alert("Checked Box deselect");
    }
});

    $("#planned_checked").change(function() {
        if($(this).prop('checked')) {
            alert("Checked Box Selected");
        } else {
            alert("Checked Box deselect");
        }
    });
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<input type="checkbox" name="planned_checked" checked id="planned_checked"> Planned



This worked for me:

$get("isAgeSelected ").checked == true

Where isAgeSelected is the id of the control.

Also, @karim79's answer works fine. I am not sure what I missed at the time I tested it.

Note, this is answer uses Microsoft Ajax, not jQuery




Using the Click event handler for the checkbox property is unreliable, as the checked property can change during the execution of the event handler itself!

Ideally, you'd want to put your code into a change event handler such as it is fired every time the value of the check box is changed (independent of how it's done so).

$('#isAgeSelected').bind('change', function () {

   if ($(this).is(':checked'))
     $("#txtAge").show();
   else
     $("#txtAge").hide();
});



I believe you could do this:

if ($('#isAgeSelected :checked').size() > 0)
{
    $("#txtAge").show(); 
} else { 
    $("#txtAge").hide();
}



I ran in to the exact same issue. I have an ASP.NET checkbox

<asp:CheckBox ID="chkBox1" CssClass='cssChkBox1' runat="server" />

In the jQuery code I used the following selector to check if the checkbox was checked or not, and it seems to work like a charm.

if ($("'.cssChkBox1 input[type=checkbox]'").is(':checked'))
{ ... } else { ... }

I'm sure you can also use the ID instead of the CssClass,

if ($("'#cssChkBox1 input[type=checkbox]'").is(':checked'))
{ ... } else { ... }

I hope this helps you.




This is some different method to do the same thing:

$(document).ready(function (){

    $('#isAgeSelected').click(function() {
        // $("#txtAge").toggle(this.checked);

        // Using a pure CSS selector
        if ($(this.checked)) {
            alert('on check 1');
        };

        // Using jQuery's is() method
        if ($(this).is(':checked')) {
            alert('on checked 2');
        };

        //  // Using jQuery's filter() method
        if ($(this).filter(':checked')) {
            alert('on checked 3');
        };
    });
});
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<input type="checkbox" id="isAgeSelected"/>
<div id="txtAge" style="display:none">Age is something</div>



You can use this code:

$('#isAgeSelected').click(function(){
   console.log(this.checked);
   if(this.checked == true) {
        $("#txtAge").show();
    } else {
       $("#txtAge").hide();
   }
});



$(document).ready(function() {    
    $('#agecheckbox').click(function() {
        if($(this).is(":checked"))
        {
            $('#agetextbox').show();
        } else {
            $('#agetextbox').hide();
        }
    });
});



You can use:

  if(document.getElementById('isAgeSelected').checked)
    $("#txtAge").show();  
  else
    $("#txtAge").hide();

if($("#isAgeSelected").is(':checked'))
  $("#txtAge").show();  
else
  $("#txtAge").hide();

Both of them should work.




The top answer didn't do it for me. This did though:

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){

        $("#li_13").click(function(){
            if($("#agree").attr('checked')){
                $("#saveForm").fadeIn();
            }
            else
            {
                $("#saveForm").fadeOut();
            }
        });
    });
</script>

Basically when the element #li_13 is clicked, it checks if the element # agree (which is the checkbox) is checked by using the .attr('checked') function. If it is then fadeIn the #saveForm element, and if not fadeOut the saveForm element.




Toggle: 0/1 or else

<input type="checkbox" id="nolunch" />
<input id="checklunch />"

    $('#nolunch').change(function () {
    if ($(this).is(':checked')) {
        $('#checklunch').val('1');
    };
    if ($(this).is(':checked') == false) {
        $('#checklunch').val('0');
    };
});



Though you have proposed a JavaScript solution for your problem (displaying a textbox when a checkbox is checked), this problem could be solved just by css. With this approach, your form works for users who have disabled JavaScript.

Assuming that you have the following HTML:

<label for="show_textbox">Show Textbox</label>
<input id="show_textbox" type="checkbox" />
<input type="text" />

You can use the following CSS to achieve the desired functionality:

 #show_textbox:not(:checked) + input[type=text] {display:none;}

For other scenarios, you may think of appropriate CSS selectors.

Here is a Fiddle to demonstrate this approach.




if($("#checkkBoxId").is(':checked')){
  alert("Checked=true");
}

or

if($("#checkkBoxId").attr('checked') == true){
  alert("checked=true");
}
