How to know which radio button is selected using jQuery?

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 03 Aug, 2021

To check which radio button is selected in a form, we first get the desired input group with the type of input as an option and then the value of this selection can then be accessed by the val() method. This returns the name of the option that is currently selected.

The selector ‘input[name=option]:checked’ is used to select all input groups that have the option type of input in the specified form.

Syntax:

$('input[name=option]:checked', 'formName').val()

This is shown in the example below.
Example:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>

                       name="option" 
                       value="free">
              Free Membership
            </label>
            <label>
                <input type="radio" 
                       name="option" 
                       value="premium">
              Premium Membership
            </label>
        </form>
    
    
    <p>
      The value of the option selected is: 
      <span class="output"></span>
  </p>
    <button id="btn">
      Check option button
  </button>
    
    <script src=
  </script>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
        
      // Check the radio button value.
        $('#btn').on('click', function() {
            output = 
              $('input[name=option]:checked',
                '#myForm').val();
            
            document.querySelector(
              '.output').textContent = output;
        });
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:



Check after clicking on the first option:
check-free

Check after clicking on the second option:
