How do I check a checkbox with jQuery or JavaScript?

How do I check a checkbox with jQuery or JavaScript?

jQuery 1.6+

: Solution : 

Use the new .prop() function:
$(".myCheckbox").prop("checked", true);
$(".myCheckbox").prop("checked", false);

jQuery 1.5 and below

The .prop() function is not available, so you need to use .attr().

To check the checkbox (by setting the value of the checked attribute) do $('.myCheckbox').attr('checked','checked')

and for un-checking (by removing the attribute entirely) do $('.myCheckbox').removeAttr('checked')

Any version of jQuery

If you're working with just one element, it will always be fastest to use DOMElement.checked = true. The benefit to using the .prop() and .attr() functions is that they will operate on all matched elements.

if (this.checked) 
// Assuming an event handler on a checkbox
