I'd like to get the following jQuery code to run on any forms on my site:

(function($) {
  // Hide any N/A radio buttons

  // Uncheck a radio button on double-click
    $(this).prop('checked', false);

I've read that I can probably just add it to my template.php file, but I'd like to put it in a module. How would I do that?


Thanks for the suggestions! So I went with option 3 because it seemed to make the most sense to me for my use-case. I still wasn't getting my jQuery to actually work though. I've updated it to this now:

  Drupal.behaviors.doubleClickNA = {
    attach: function (context) {
      // Hide the N/A radio button

      // Enable the double-click unchecker function
        $(this).prop('checked', false);
        $(this).parent().parent().$('.form-radio[value=_none]').prop('checked', true);

That seems to get the N/A radio button to disappear, but the second function still doesn't work. The $('document').ready part was the key for the first function (duh, right?), but I believe I need to use a behavior to get the double click action to work after the page as finished rendering. What more am I missing here?

You have different ways/options to add custom javascript/jQuery file with your module.

Option 1: Add myscript.js in module info file (mymodule.info).

scripts[] = js/myscript.js

Option 2: Add myscript.js using hook_init and drupal_add_js

function mymodule_init() {
  drupal_add_js(drupal_get_path('module', 'MODULE_NAME') .'/js/myscript.js', 'file');

Option 3: Add myscript.js to any Drupal form or any callback that contains Drupal form

function mymodule_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) {
  $form['#attached']['js'][] = array(
    'data' => drupal_get_path('module', 'MODULE_NAME') . '/js/myscript.js', 
    'type' => 'file',

The simplest way is to add it as a script file (eg. mysite.js) in the module directory and add:

scripts[] = mysite.js

to the .info file for the module. That way it will be aggregated with the other javascript files and will be an active library on all pages.
