input:checked not working

input:checked not working

input:checked not working

I am trying to collect all the pkey attributes from a checkbox.

If I do:


$('.chexPass input:checked').each(function () {
   $("#ChecklistSelected").val($("#ChecklistSelected").val() + $(this).attr("pkey").val() + ",");

It doesn't find anything.

If I do $('.chexPass'), it works fine and finds all the checkboxes and the ones that checked will have a value of "true".

I would like to use the .each loop but if it doesn't work, I can check each value.

Anyone know why it doesn't work?



RE: input:checked not working

how about


$('.chexPass:checked').each(function () {
   $("#ChecklistSelected").val($("#ChecklistSelected").val() + $(this).attr("pkey").val() + ",");

assuming the input's have the class applied to them, hard to tell with no markup to view!

Also you seem to be using custom attributes, there is a new attribute in the standards for this, it is called 'data'

so you should use



and the HTML would be


<input type="checkbox" data-pkey="my value" value="???" />
