Using Jquery to test checkboxes inside if statement not working

Using Jquery to test checkboxes inside if statement not working

Using Jquery to test checkboxes inside if statement not working

(OP)
I ran into an issue where I couldn't get my test of a checkbox wouldn't work. Using JQuery inside of an "if" statement seemed to not work but when I took it out of the if statement and put the result into a variable it worked fine.

For example, if I do it the following ways:

CODE

if($("input:checkbox").is(":checked") == false)
{
    // Do something if not checked
} 

OR

CODE

if(!$("input:checkbox").is(":checked"))
{
    // Do something if not checked
} 

They don't seem to work. It will always treat it as "true" regardless of whether the checkbox is checked.

But if I do this:

CODE

allFilled = $("input:checkbox").is(":checked");

if(!allFilled)
{
    // Do something if not checked
} 

It works fine.

Why can't you put the JQuery inside the "if" statement?

Thanks,

Tom

Found it.

IN my code, I had a semicolon right after the if statement and that caused it to always go to the next statement.
