Javascript – Getting all selected checkboxes in an array

ajaxdhtmljavascriptjquery

So I have these checkboxes:

<input type="checkbox" name="type" value="4" />
<input type="checkbox" name="type" value="3" />
<input type="checkbox" name="type" value="1" />
<input type="checkbox" name="type" value="5" />

And so on. There are about 6 of them and are hand-coded (i.e not fetched from a db) so they are likely to remain the same for a while.

My question is how I can get them all in an array (in javascript), so I can use them while making an AJAX $.post request using Jquery.

Any thoughts?

Edit: I would only want the selected checkboxes to be added to the array

Formatted :

$("input:checkbox[name=type]:checked").each(function(){
    yourArray.push($(this).val());
});

Hopefully, it will work.
