Use : var ConTVal = $("#rbDevice").is(":checked"); // true or false

Test page :


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$("*").click(function() {
			if( $("#rbDevice").is(":checked") ) alert("thank you, you selected me!");
		});
	});
</script>
</head>
<body>
<input type="radio" name="r" />Don't check me!<br />
<input type="radio" name="r" />Don't check me!<br />
<input id="rbDevice" type="radio" name="r" /><b>Please check me!</b><br />
<input type="radio" name="r" />Don't check me!<br />
</body>
</html>

So what would the one line be?

if( $("#rbDevice").is(":checked") = true?

I don't program in java script so I don't know much about the syntax

You said :
>I am trying this :
>var ConTVal = $get("rbDevice").checked;

I propose you a working line doing the same thing with one line :
var ConTVal = $("#rbDevice").is(":checked");

To use it :


if( $("#rbDevice").is(":checked") )
{
  // do something if true
}
else
{
  // do something if false
}

I don't know if this makes a diffrence but there are two rb next to each other: this is the html'

<td style="text-align:left" class="summaryBlackLabel">
                                                            Type:<br />
                                                            <input id="rbDevice" type="radio" name="rbgType" value="0" />Device
                                                        <br />
                                                        <input id="rbControl" type="radio" name="rbgType" value="1" />Controller
                                                        </td>
