function onxyg(){
                                                 
if(true){
        alert("is true");
        $(chngid).prop("checked", false).change();
       alert("done change");
        return;
 }
}

at checkbox I am doing onChange and calling onxyg java script function. But every time when I call "$(chngid).prop("checked", false).change();" it is triggering onChange again and looping ;

Please let me know if any one has better idea to work on this.

Hi,

Have you tried-
$(chngid).toggle(this.checked);

Hi,

You can also do-
$(chngid).attr("checked",true/false);

There's a lot wrong with your code

Your if statement will always fire:

if (True)

You're supposed to check whether 'something' is true

The reason your code fires the change again is because you're asking it to with the change() method:

$(chngid).prop("checked", false).change();

You refer to a variable called 'chngid' but never declare it anywhere or pass it into your function.

On top of that, it looks like your code is trying to prevent a tickbox from being ticked. Is that right!

Thanks for all your answers.

Sorry to short cut my code here in this question.  In real code I am checking if check box is cheked is true and I am checking that as  True. And if it is true I want to make it false and also change the label of the Checkbox(IphoneStyle).

on the checkbox code in html I am calling onchange and calling the javascript method.

Variable chngid is the checkbox html element. I declared it on top of my code.

Still doesn't really make a lot of sense. When someone changes the checkbox, you want to change it to false, thereby preventing it ever being true. Is that right?

If you want to make the checkbox false, then why bother checking whether it's true - just set it to false!

How to you tie up the checkbox with the label, so you can change the text

You shouldn't be calling code directly in the HTML - you should bind the event in jQuery

This will set the checkbox to false if someone tries to change it:

$('input[type="checkbox"]').change(function() {
    $(this).attr('checked', false);
});
