I have four checkboxes, but not allow none or all to be checked.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<form action="">
<input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="Bike">I have a bike<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="Car">I have a car<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="House">I have a house<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="Cat">I have a cat <br>
</form>

</body>
</html>

var formobj = document.forms[0];

var counter = 0;
Try to findout selected value like this

for (var j = 0; j < formobj.elements.length; j++)
{
    if (formobj.elements[j].type == "checkbox")
    {
        if (formobj.elements[j].checked)
        {
            counter++;
        }
    }      
}

alert('Total Checked = ' + counter);


With jQuery you can:

$("input:checkbox:checked").length;
alert($('form input[type=checkbox]:checked').size());
