"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The code below works in NS3, haven't checked it with other browsers. You can't do it with a submit button, because this will submit the form. But in stead of the text between the <a href=...> and </a> you can use an image which looks like a button.


You can build in a check if a form element is a checkbox or not.
something like:
if (document.form1.element[i].type = "checkbox") {

}

============

<script>
function CheckThem() {
      i = 0;
      while (i < document.form1.length) {
            document.form1.elements[i].checked = true;
            i = i + 1
      }
}

</script>

<form name="form1">
<input type="checkbox" name="a">
<input type="checkbox" name="b">
<input type="checkbox" name="c">
<input type="checkbox" name="d">
<input type="checkbox" name="e">
<input type="checkbox" name="f">
<input type="checkbox" name="g">
<input type="checkbox" name="h">
<input type="checkbox" name="i">
<P>
<a href="Javascript:CheckThem()">Check All Boxes</a>

</form>
