<input type="hidden" name="showonlyinstorepickup" value="false" />

My alert box comes up as undefined instead of what the attribute is set to:

 if ($('input[name="showonlyinstorepickup"]').length > 0)
        {
            alert($(this).attr("name"));
        }

I am actually more interested in what the value attribute is set to instead of what the name attribute of the hidden field is.

   alert($(this).attr("value"));

also says "undefined"



NOTE:  If there is a better way to put information on the page that is hidden, please let me know....I am open to a better way of doing this.

        {
            alert($('input[name="showonlyinstorepickup"]').attr("name"));
        }

or

$h = $('input[name="showonlyinstorepickup"]');
if($h.length > 0)
