How to Show and Hide div elements using Checkboxes ?

  • Last Updated : 03 Aug, 2021
Geek Week

In order to display data/content of a specific element by selecting the particular checkbox in jQuery we can use the toggle() method.
The toggle() method is used to check the visibility of selected elements to toggle between hide() and show() for the selected elements.

Syntax:

$(selector).toggle(speed, easing, callback)

Approach:

  • Selector name for checkbox is same as the element which is used to display the
    content.
  • CSS display property of each element is set to none using display: none; for hiding the element initially.
  • Use .toggle() method for displaying and hiding the element for checking and unchecking the box.

Example 1: Displaying the content using checkboxes.




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
      Show and Hide div elements using checkbox
    </title>
    <script src=
    <style type="text/css">
        .selectt {
            color: #fff;
            padding: 30px;
            display: none;
            margin-top: 30px;
            width: 60%;
            background: green
        }
          
        label {
            margin-right: 20px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
        <h1 style="color:green;"
