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

  11480 views   2 years ago jQuery

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. Let's try out an example to see how it works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Get Values of Selected Checboxes</title>
<script src=""></script>
    $(document).ready(function() {
            var favorite = [];
            $.each($("input[name='sport']:checked"), function(){
            alert("My favourite sports are: " + favorite.join(", "));
        <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>
        <button type="button">Get Values</button>
