Jun 25, 2014

Here I will explain how to use
jQuery to check if checkbox checked/selected or not or jQuery code to check if checkbox selected or unchecked or check if checkbox selected or not using jQuery.

In previous articles I explained
jQuery change image on mouseover, jQuery dropdown with images, jQuery show alert message while leaving from website, jQuery Countdown timer script example and many articles relating to jQuery and Now I will how to check if checkbox checked or not in jQuery.

We can check whether checkbox checked or not in different ways those are

Method 1:

var status = $('#chkindia:checked').val() ? true : false
Method 2:

var status = $('#chkindia').is(':checked');
Method 3:

var status = $('#chkindia').attr('checked') ? true : false;

If you want to check it in complete sample we need to write the code like as shown below

<html xmlns="">
<title>jQuery Check if checkbox checked or not</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
$('#btnSubmit').click(function() {
var status = $('#chkindia').is(':checked');
<b>Select Checkbox :</b>
<input type="checkbox" id="chkindia" value="India" />India
<button id="btnSubmit">Checkbox Status</button>
