Hi Rolf,

I got it working, I needed to add the click event to the label instead of

I thought it would be good to clear this up for the list.

I've added some samples which show how to dynamically update using Ajax:

You came across two issues. Checkboxes use a hidden field. The standard
#serializeThisWithHidden didn't work on jQueryMobile as the jQuery it

self serialize: (self jQuery this
next: 'input:hidden';

Didn't work the div tags jQuery mobile adds around checkboxes. I've added:

"Serialize the receiving form element and a following hidden form element.
This is required in case of a check-box or multi-select list.
 jQueryMobile inserts a div between the element and the checkbox so the
#serializeThisWithHidden doesn't work
WARNNG: This is fragile to changes in jQueryMobile's markup"
 self serialize: (self jQuery this parent
next: 'input:hidden';
add: (self jQuery this))

which solves this problem but is a little fragile. The samples:
two methods for serialising checkboxes.

The events firing twice was a bug. This is now fixed in the latest release
