Looking to fire an event when a user unchecks a checkbox.

By default the checkbox is unchecked, if the user checks then unchecks the box an alert fires.

you can use onclick event on checkbox..
and use
if(document.getElementById('cbox').checked)

to check if it is checked or unchecked.

Try this:

http://jsfiddle.net/zCvex/
function checkme(o) {
    if (!o.checked) {
         alert("Oops! I'm unchecked!");        
    }
}¿

Open in new window

<label for="chk"><input id="chk" type="checkbox" onclick="checkme(this)"> I am checkbox</label>¿

Open in new window

Take a look at this jsfiddle

Code is:

function eventUnchecked() {
    alert("Unchecked");
}

$("#monitor").change(function() {
    if ($(this).is(":checked") == false) eventUnchecked();

});

Open in new window

This is what I have based upon some of your comments. Sorry I should have clarified, I'm using mootools, so would this be correct or should I use something else besides ".match"
           
            var checkEmail = $$('input#vz-email-1');
            checkEmail.addEvent('change', function(e){
                        if ($(this).match(":checked") == false) {
                    alert('test');
                }
                  });

It is working fine. http://jsfiddle.net/tgZJy/1/
Or you can use just
var checkEmail = $$('input#vz-email-1');
checkEmail.addEvent('change', function(e){
    if ($(this).checked == false) {
        alert('test');
    }
});¿

Sorry Proculopsis, I meant to give you some of the credit as well. Is there a way to update?
