How to check if checkbox is checked in jQuery

How can you use jQuery to see if a checkbox with an id property is checked?

You can find HTML elements like a checkbox using jQuery selectors. They start with a dollar sign and brackets: $().

To see if a checkbox is checked, find it by its id using a jQuery selector. Then, use the is method:

if($("#myCheckbox").is(":checked")) {

The is() method looks for a :checked CSS pseudo-class. This gets added to a checkbox if it's ticked. It gives back true if the checkbox is ticked.

You can do this check in the same way using basic JavaScript:

if(document.getElementById('myCheckbox').checked) {

The getElementById is a tool that helps you find a specific element by its id. The checked property, which is either true or false, is used for checkbox inputs.
