Jquery checkbox value

Using JQuery to mobilize some pages in salesforce.

I am trying to use a checkbox, but I cannot get the checkbox value into my object.

 

Here is my code for the checkbox in the viauslforce page:

<div data-role="fieldcontain">
    <fieldset data-role="controlgroup">
	  
	   <input data-mini="true" type="checkbox" name="checked_out" id="checked_out" value="1"/>
	   <label for="checked_out" data-inline="true">Checked Out:</label>
    </fieldset>
</div> 

 

 

Here is the javascript remoting part.

 $(".insertButton").click(function() {
               alert($("#checked_out").val());
                var merchRecord = {
                   
                    Operating_System__c: $("#operating_system").val(),
                    Model__c: $("#model").val(),
                    Asset_Tag__c:$("#asset_tag").val(),
                    checked_out__c:$("#checked_out").val(),
                    Hostname__c: "Hostname"
                };
                $.mobile.showPageLoadingMsg();
                InventoryExtension.insertInventoryItem(merchRecord, handleUpdate);
            });

 In the above code, the alert proves to me that the value is a 1 or 0, when I set it so.

Using True, False, 0, 1 does not work.

 

Here is my error:

Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: INVALID_TYPE_ON_FIELD_IN_RECORD, 
Checked Out: value not of required type: 1: [checked_out__c]

 Not sure why I cannot get a 0 or a 1 into the object.

Any ideas?

I made some progress.

 

I see if I hardcode the checkbox value, with no quotes, double or single, in the javascript like so:

 

checked_out__c:true

 This value gets into the object.

 

Just need to figure out how to get the value in with the poper format.

I worked it out:

 

var isCheckedOut = false;
                 if($("#checked_out").prop('checked')){
                     isCheckedOut = true;
                 }

 

 

 Then pass 'isCheckedOut' to the Apex Controller:

var merchRecord = {
                   
                    Operating_System__c: $("#operating_system").val(),
                    Model__c: $("#model").val(),
                    Asset_Tag__c:$("#asset_tag").val(),
                    checked_out__c:isCheckedOut,
                    Hostname__c: "Hostname"
                };
