JavaScript DOM Scripting By Example Editing and Filtering Names Filter Invitees Who Have Not Responded

Is there nay other way than using the if (li[i].className === 'responded')

Is there any other way to find out that the li[i] element's input checkbox is checked?

Sure, but at this point in the code you only have a reference to the li element and not the checkbox itself. By using DOM traversal, you could get a reference to the checkbox. Then you could examine the checkbox's checked property just like when the class was added by the change event handler.

But since that handler sets the li's class to match the checkbox state, it's much simpler to just check the class here.
