I my app i have search textbox .When I type something in will produce the list
of names along with checkboxes. upon clicking on the checkbox I want
to append the value of the checkbox to the hidden form variable.

As i type second time I I get a different list it add more options .

My code is here
 var output = '';
$(".myCheckboxClass").change(function() {
											
   											 $('input[type="checkbox"]:checked').each(function(index) {
    output += $(this).val() + ", ";
  });

Try something like this (not tested)

$(".myCheckboxClass").click(function() {
  var vals = [];
  $(".myCheckboxClass").each(function() {
    if ($(this).is(':checked') vals.push($(this).val());
  }
  $("#bodyIDList").val(vals.join(", "));
})

Better way use javascript.
Just call function on click of checkbox.

In that function take an array (like in javascript). Then first check if that string (checkbox value) is already in array or not by using indexOf().

see:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Array/indexOf

Also refer this for other manipulation with javascript array.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Array

Hope this helps you and get out of your small problem. :-)

jQuery IS javascript. If you already use it, it is in most cases making your life a lot easier, assuming you can get to grips with the syntax.

The jQuery I posted would look like this in plain JS

window.onload=function() {
  getCheck(true); // 
}
function getCheck(isInit) {
  var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
  var vals = [];
  var inp;
  for (var i=0, n=inputs.length;i<n;i++) {
    inp = inputs[i]; 
    if (inp.className.indexOf("myCheckboxClass") !=-1) {
      if (isInit) {
        inp.onclick=function() {
          getCheck(false);
        }
      }
      if (inp.checked) vals.push(inp.value)
    }
  }
  document.getElementById("bodyIDList").value=vals.length>0?vals.join(", "):"";
}
