<input type="checkbox" name="foo" value="bar" />

var value =  $('input[name=foo]').is(':checked') // to check whether its true or false 1st method
var value = $('input[name=foo]').attr('checked') // to check whether its true or false 2nd method
if(value ==true){

Thank you, the idea worked. I didn't realize that I can use a combo of javascript and jquery.
