if you are looking for a javascript code to check if the checkbox if checked or not, then see
http://www.w3schools.com/js/tryit.asp?filename=try_dom_input_checked

for example, if the html is
<input type="checkbox" id="myCheck" />

this method will return the true if the checkbox is ticked
function ischecked(checkboxId)
{
    return document.getElementById(checkboxId).checked;
}
alert(ischecked("myCheck"));

<<i want any code which shows red cross in box on click..>>
what do you mean? you want to show an read cross image on checkbox toggle?

try this code, replace the image name with yours
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<script>
		function ischecked(checkboxId)
		{
			return document.getElementById(checkboxId).checked;
		}
		function toggleImage(checkboxId)
		{
			if ( ischecked( checkboxId ) )
			{
				document.getElementById("img1").style.display = "block";
			}
			else
			{
				document.getElementById("img1").style.display = "none";
			}
		}
	</script>
</HEAD>

<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF">
	<input type="checkbox" id="myCheck" onclick="toggleImage(this.id)"/>
	<img src="21022009.jpg" width="50px" height="50px" style="display:none" id="img1">
</BODY>
</HTML>

ohh, so you want the image to toggle at the onclick event right?

then check this.
you need to replace the images name

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<script>
		function toggleImage(imageId)
		{
			var imageName = document.getElementById("img1").src ;
			if ( imageName == "21022009.jpg" )
			{
				imageName = "18072010.jpg";
			}
			else
			{
				imageName = "21022009.jpg";
			}
			document.getElementById("img1").src = imageName;
		}
	</script>
</HEAD>

<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF">
	<img src="21022009.jpg" width="50px" height="50px" id="img1" onclick="toggleImage(this.id)">
</BODY>
</HTML>
