jQuery checkbox change and click event

[Originally posted by]: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7031226/jquery-checkbox-change-and-click-event

Well I don’t see an answer that matches mine so I’ll post this. Tested in JSFiddle and does what you’re asking for.This approach has the added benefit of firing when a label associated with a checkbox is clicked.

$(document).ready(function() {
    //set initial state.
    $('#textbox1').val($(this).is(':checked'));

    $('#checkbox1').change(function() {
        if($(this).is(":checked")) {
            var returnVal = confirm("Are you sure?");
            $(this).attr("checked", returnVal);
        }
        $('#textbox1').val($(this).is(':checked'));        
    });
});
