Hi experts!

Using Jquery, I am trying to select an input based on ID and set its “checked” attribute to “true”.

But it’s not working.

Here is my code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
 
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <title></title>
 
        <script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-1.6.2.min.js" 
            type="text/javascript"></script>
 
        <script>
 
            $(document).ready(
                     function () {
                         $('input[id="1"]').checked = true;
                     }
             );
        </script>
 
    </head>
    <body>
       <input  type="Radio" name ="radio" id="1"     />
    </body>
</html>

Open in new window


I tried these other versions below but they all don’t work:
$('input["#1"]').checked = true;
$('#1').checked = true;

Please advise.

Thank you! Much appreciated!

Please note "1" is not a valid ID, it should, MUST, start by a letter.

But the following work :
            $(document).ready(
                     function () {
                         $('#1').attr("checked", true);
                     }
             );

Thank you for the tip! However, the Razor view engine makes it cumbersome to fix it. But that's another story.

Thank you! Problem solved thanks to you! :)
