In jQuery, how do I get the value of a radio button when they all have the same name?

Questions:

Here is my code:

<table>
   <tr>
      <td>Sales Promotion</td>
      <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="1">1</td>
      <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="2">2</td>
      <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="3">3</td>
      <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="4">4</td>
      <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="5">5</td>
   </tr>
</table>
<button id="submit">submit</button>

Here is JS:

$(function(){
    $("#submit").click(function(){      
        alert($('input[name=q12_3]').val());
    });
 });

Here is JSFIDDLE! Every time I click button it returns 1. Why? Can anyone help me?

Answers:

In your code, jQuery just looks for the first instance of an input with name q12_3, which in this case has a value of 1. You want an input with name q12_3 that is :checked.

$("#submit").click(function() {
  var val = $('input[name=q12_3]:checked').val();
  alert(val);
});
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<table>
  <tr>
    <td>Sales Promotion</td>
    <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="1">1</td>
    <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="2">2</td>
    <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="3">3</td>
    <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="4">4</td>
    <td><input type="radio" name="q12_3" value="5">5</td>
  </tr>
</table>
<button id="submit">submit</button>

Note that the above code is not the same as using .is(":checked"). jQuery’s is() function returns a boolean (true or false) and not (an) element(s).

Answers:

in your selector, you should also specify that you want the checked radiobutton:

$(function(){
    $("#submit").click(function(){      
        alert($('input[name=q12_3]:checked').val());
    });
 });

You might want to change selector:


$('input[name=q12_3]:checked').val()

There is another way also. Try below code

$(document).ready(function(){

      $("input[name='gender']").on("click", function() {
            alert($(this).val());
        });
});
