I have a list of checkboxes. Upon clicking on each of the checkboxes i am adding the value to the hidden variable. But the question is if I want to remove the value from the list upon unchecking the checkbox . How this piece cab be done

here is the hidden form variable<input name="IDList[]" type="hidden" id="IDList" value="" /> and the jquery $(".myCheckboxClass").change(function() { var output = 0; $(".myCheckboxClass").change(function() {       if( $(this).is(":checked") ) { output += ", " + $(this).val();       }else {       output = $.grep(output, function(value) {       return value != $(this).val();       });       }       $("#IDList").val(output ); })

Recreate the list each time instead adding/removing element. If one of the checkboxes change (your current selector), loop over all elements (samedi selector) check if checked or unchecked and add to the list only if checked

Clear it
Rebuild it each click looping over all checkboxes not only the clicked

check this :
	$(".myCheckboxClass").change(function() {
		var output = []; // clear it
		$(".myCheckboxClass").each(function(i, el) {
			if( $(this).is(":checked") ) {
				output.push( $(this).val() );
			}
		})
		output.join(","); // add the comma and build the string 
		$("#IDList").val(output);
	})

Unfortunately , it does not run fine , it adding extra values , and when i uncheck it also adding values rather than removing them. It create a copy of the previously selected elements . I thing we do not need each loop there

as you can see we have a << if( $(this).is(":checked") ) { >>
mean we rebuild each time the string only with checked value
line 2 reset the string : var output = []; // clear it
