I am trying to validate a required checkbox on an existing AJAX form that submits to db. All the other required text fields show the AJAX "required" error (reveals a hidden div with the word "required") but the checkbox field does not unless I remove the value from the input field (value="Y") but then the submission inserts an empty value in the db table.

I noticed that if I check the box, then uncheck it, the "required" message is revealed - making me think that maybe the checkbox validation needs to be inserted somewhere in the part of the jquery which refers to the "req_class"  ??:

form checkbox input tag:

<input type="checkbox" name="rules" id="rules" class="req_class" value="y" >
   <label class="label2">By participating, I agree to be bound by the officia rules.<span class="req">*</span><em id="err_rules" class="error">required</em></label>

Validation includes:

function JsonResponse(jsonResponse)
{
    if(jsonResponse.ice_response.success != null && jsonResponse.ice_response.success != undefined)
        return jsonResponse.ice_response.success;
    else if(jsonResponse.ice_response.error != null && jsonResponse.ice_response.error != undefined)      
         return jsonResponse.ice_response.error;              
}
function RequiredValidation()
{
    var is_error = false;
    var is_focus = false;
     
    $(".req_class").each(function(index){
        var _value = jQuery.trim($(this).val());
        var field = this.name;
        if(_value == '')
        {
           if(is_focus == false)
           {
               is_focus = true;
               $(this).focus();
           }
           
           ShowVisibility("#err_"+field);
           is_error = true;
        }else
        {
            HideVisibility("#err_"+field);
        }
    });
   
    return  is_error;
}

function doValidate()
{
   var is_error = RequiredValidation();
   if(is_error == true)
   {
       return false;
   }else
   {
       return true;
   }
}


function onChangeHandle(obj)
{
    if(obj.type == 'checkbox') {
       if(obj.checked) {
           HideVisibility("#err_"+obj.id);  
       } else {
           ShowVisibility("#err_"+obj.id);
       }
    } else if(jQuery.trim(obj.value) != '') {
       HideVisibility("#err_"+obj.id);
    }else
    {
       ShowVisibility("#err_"+obj.id);
    }
}


=========================
or maybe somewhere in here  ??
=========================

var response_div =  "#response_div";
var formID =  "#myform";
var required_fields = ["name","rules"]
 
jQuery(document).ready(function()
{
     // prepare Options Object
    var options = {
        targetDiv:     response_div,
        beforeSubmit: validate,
        success:       onSuccess,
        error:       onError,
        dataType:  'json'
    };
 
 // bind to the form's submit event
    $(formID).submit(function() {
       
        $(this).ajaxSubmit(options);

        return false;
    });
   
    $(".req_class").change(function() {
       onChangeHandle(this);
    });
 
});

try this RequiredValidation function :
function RequiredValidation()
{
    var is_error = false;
    var is_focus = false;
     
    $(".req_class").each(function(index){
        var _value = jQuery.trim($(this).val());
        var field = this.name;
        if(_value == '' || ( $(this).attr("type") == "checkbox" && !$(this).is(":checked") ) )
        {
           if(is_focus == false)
           {
               is_focus = true;
               $(this).focus();
           }
           
           ShowVisibility("#err_"+field);
           is_error = true;
        }else
        {
            HideVisibility("#err_"+field);
        }
    });
    
    return  is_error;
}
