Checkbox Validation In Jquery

See the following line of code and place this code before the </head> tag of your html web page.

// you must include this line and if you want to add the path from local then change path to local directory.

<script src=”” type=”text/javascript”></script>

Next step you need to add the following CSS code before the closing tag of the HTML page.

<style> body{ font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif} </style>

Next step is to add the following code of form in the body tag. It must be required the function call onsubmit event and also required the chk1 id of the checkbox input. you can give any name but you should use that name in the jquery while accessing the checkbox. 

<div style=”width:450px;height:200px;margin:auto;padding:50px;border:solid 1px #999;”>
<form onsubmit=”return checkValidation(this);”>
<h2>Checkbox Validation In Jquery</h2>
<p><input type=”checkbox” id=”chk1″ value=”Select Me”> Select Me</p>
<p><input type=”submit” value=”Submit”></p>


Next step, add the final javascript code before the end of body tag.

<script type=”text/javascript” language=”JavaScript”> 
function checkValidation()
if (jQuery(“#chk1”).prop(“checked”))
alert(“Select Me checkbox is checked”);

alert(“no checkbox is checked”);
return false;
