Hi,

Here’s a simple question. I have a checkbox, so as we all know, when you click on it, it is checked.

Here’s the thing, when you check it, it doesn’t update the DOM , you can see that it’s checked, but not in the DOM . So I tried to add the attribute “checked = checked” to the element via JS, but it doesn’t change a bit.

Anyone else has saw this “issue”? I need the checked attribute for further processing since I’m taking the innerHTML of the parent to put it into another “div” after a click event.

Thanks!

I’m not sure I understand… if you’re posting it to another page, the value is passed on submit. Alternatively if you need it to affect the DOM , just use JS. Something like http://forum.jquery.com/topic/jquery-checkbox-checked-event ?

The DOM needs to be changed when you check the checkbox. I’m trying it to do it with JS, but it doesn’t change a bit in the DOM .

Don’t get it. With jQuery everything seems normal: http://jsfiddle.net/zaSVH/1/

check the checkbox and inspect the element, you’ll see that the attribute “checked” isn’t there but the checkbox is checked.

I guess because “checked” is not an attribute rather a property. You write checked="checked" because of a valid XHTML syntax. HTML don’t need that so checked is good.

readonly, disabled or required are also properties and not attributes

Edit: properties can only be true or false not something like “checked”

What is the value of an input that is checked and not checked?
