:input selector doesn't work for checkboxes

I'm submitting a form through ajax, using :input to grab all the form values. However, it is not distinguishing whether checkboxes have been checked or not... it just grabs the value anyways.

Here's what I'm using, if that helps at all:

$(document).ready(function() {

$('#addtocart').click (function() {

$.ajax ({

type: "POST",

url: 'includes/ajaxcart.php',

dataType: 'json',

data: $(':input'),

success: function (result) {

$('#bagcount').text (result.count);

alert (result.message);



return false;

The value property of a checkbox (which you are getting indirectly) is the same whether its checked attribute/property is set or not.

If you want the values of all the form elements as they would have been if you submitted the form, look at the formSerialize method in the Forms plugin.
