How to get the values of selected checkboxes in a group using jQuery

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the jQuery :checked selector

You can use the jQuery :checked selector in combination with the each() method to retrieve the values of all checkboxes selected in a group. The each() method used here simply iterates over all the checkboxes that are checked. Here's an example:

  • <!DOCTYPE html>
  • <html lang="en">
  • <head>
  • <meta charset="utf-8">
  • <title>jQuery Get Values of Selected Checboxes</title>
  • <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>
  • <script type="text/javascript">
  •     $(document).ready(function() {
  •         $("button").click(function(){
  •             var favorite = [];
  •             $.each($("input[name='sport']:checked"), function(){            
  •                 favorite.push($(this).val());
  •             });
  •             alert("My favourite sports are: " + favorite.join(", "));
  •         });
  •     });
  • </script>
  • </head>
  • <body>
  •     <form>
  •         <h3>Select your favorite sports:</h3>
  •         <label><input type="checkbox" value="football" name="sport"> Football</label>
  •         <label><input type="checkbox" value="baseball" name="sport"> Baseball</label>
  •         <label><input type="checkbox" value="cricket" name="sport"> Cricket</label>
  •         <label><input type="checkbox" value="boxing" name="sport"> Boxing</label>
  •         <label><input type="checkbox" value="racing" name="sport"> Racing</label>
  •         <label><input type="checkbox" value="swimming" name="sport"> Swimming</label>
  •         <br>
  •         <button type="button">Get Values</button>
  •     </form>
  • </body>
  • </html>
