Checkbox.defaultChecked Property

Name

Checkbox.defaultChecked Property---initial state of a Checkbox

Availability

Navigator 2.0, Internet Explorer 3.0

Synopsis

checkbox.defaultChecked

Description

defaultChecked is a read-only Boolean property of the Checkbox object. It is true if the Checkbox is initially checked--i.e., if the CHECKED attribute appears in the Checkbox's HTML <INPUT> tag. If this tag does not appear, then the Checkbox is initially unchecked, and defaultChecked is false.

Usage

You can use the defaultChecked property to reset a Checkbox back to its default state. You might do this when the user selects a Reset button in a form, for example. You can reset a Checkbox with the following function:

function resetCheckbox(checkbox) {
    if (checkbox.defaultChecked) checkbox.checked = true;
    else checkbox.checked = false;
}
