How to check a radio button with jQuery?


I’m using jQuery to check a radio button. My code is as follows:

    <div id='type'>
        <input type='radio' id='radio_1' name='type' value='1' />
        <input type='radio' id='radio_2' name='type' value='2' />
        <input type='radio' id='radio_3' name='type' value='3' /> 

And the JavaScript:

jQuery("#radio_1").attr('checked', true);

Doesn’t work:

jQuery("input[value='1']").attr('checked', true);

Doesn’t work:

jQuery('input:radio[name="type"]').filter('[value="1"]').attr('checked', true);

Doesn’t work:

Do you have any other suggestions? What am I overlooking?

Use the following syntax for jQuery versions equal to or greater than (>=) 1.6:

$("#radio_1").prop("checked", true);

Use: for versions earlier to () 1.6.

$("#radio_1").attr('checked', 'checked');

After that, you might wish to execute click() or change() on the radio button. More information can be found in the comments.

Try this.

In this case, I’m using its input name and value to target it.

$("input[name=background][value='some value']").prop("checked",true);

It’s also worth noting that apostrophes will operate in the situation of multi-word value.

Prop() is a new function added in jQuery 1.6 that serves the same purpose.

$("#radio_1").prop("checked", true);

Option that is short and easy to read:


You can use it in a “if” statement because it returns true or false.

Try this.

To check Radio button using Value use this.

$('input[name=type][value=2]').attr('checked', true); 


$('input[name=type][value=2]').attr('checked', 'checked');


$('input[name=type][value=2]').prop('checked', 'checked');

To check Radio button using ID use this.
