Set new element checkbox checked

Reported by ReeRun | September 24th, 2008 @ 09:47 AM

So, what happens... I try to create a new element like so:

var newItem=new Element('input',{type:'checkbox',value:item.id,name:'id'})

Now i want to have it checked when showed. I now do it like this:


Where item is a JSO created from an AJAX call, which looks like this:


Can anyone tell me why this is not working?



So item.checked in the environment is eval'd as true. Thus far everything is good. But when I try the above to check it by default, nothing happens.

I soon after insert the newly created element in another element:

list.insert(new Element('label').update(newItem).insert(item.name)).insert(new Element('br'));
