I've a choice field in a list form where multiple selection is enabled. I want to click a button (a custom one I've added) on selection of some options. How can this be achieved? Thanks in advance.

You can use JQuery for this purpose.

  $(document).ready(function () {
    $("#idoftheTableElementContainer input").each(function () {
        $(this).change(function () {
            //label next to checkbox holds the value. 
            if ($(this).next().val() == "random value") {

Make sure JQuery is referenced to the page.

  • It didn't work for me. I'm not sure if I'm entering the correct id for the checkbox. It looks like ctl00_m_g_a186c028_a2e3_485b_8545_63786566994a_ctl00_ListFieldIterator2_ctl05_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00

  • Multiselect choice columns is rendered as a many check boxes inside a <table>. You have to get the id of the <table> element
