finding all checkboxes that are NOT checked

If I wanted to select all checkboxes that are selected, I could do this.

$('#mydiv input[type=checkbox]:checked')

Is there a similarly simple syntax that lets me select all the checkboxes that are NOT selected?


Hiya yep: demo


  The .not() method will end up providing you with more readable selections than pushing complex selectors or variables into a :not()

selector filter. In most cases, it is a better choice.

Hope this helps, :) cheers!

 $('#mydiv input[type=checkbox]:not(:checked)')

You won't believe it.

$('#mydiv input[type=checkbox]').not(':checked')

EDIT: Stackoverflow management, whats going on with the nuts CAPTCHA? Every single answer today requires me to enter a CAPTCHA code?
