Input Checked Attribute
The checked attribute is a boolean attribute.
When present, it specifies that an element should be pre-selected (checked) when the page loads.
The checked attribute can be used with and .
Take a look at the following example:
<form action="/action_page.php"> <input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="Bike"> I have a bike<br> <input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="Car" checked> I have a car<br> <input type="submit" value="Submit"> </form>
In the example above when the web page is loaded by default the second checkbox will come automatically selected due to the checked attribute.
