I would like to have a form where aa user can select multiple choices.  I can do this with checkboxes but I would like to have an "All Of The Above" which would deselect all of the checkboxes from above.

Example
[] Archive
[] Current Issue
[] Another Choice

[] All of the Above

The user could select archive and Another choice, but if he selected All of the above I would like the choices above that were selected to be deselected.  Is there a way to do this?

Here goes the answer:

<html>
<head>
<title>Example</title>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function select_one() {
 document.myform.ch_all.checked = false
}

function deselect_all() {
 for (var i = 0; i<document.myform.elements.length; i++) {
  sName = document.myform.elements[i].name
  if ((sName .indexOf('ch_') != -1) && (sName != "ch_all")) {
   document.myform.elements[i].checked = false
  }
 }        
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="myform">
<input type="checkbox" name="ch_archive" onClick="if (this.checked) select_one();">Archive<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="ch_current" onClick="if (this.checked) select_one();">Current<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="ch_another" onClick="if (this.checked) select_one();">Another Choice<br><br>
<input type="checkbox" name="ch_all" onClick="if (this.checked) deselect_all();">All of the abovee<br>

Here goes the code for that:

-------- 8< --------- 8< -------
<html>
<head>
<title>Example</title>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function deselect_all(idform, boxname, new_state) {
 for (var i = 0; i<idform.elements.length; i++) {
  sName = idform.elements[i].name
  if (sName.indexOf('ch_') != -1) {
   idform.elements[i].checked = new_state
  } else {
   if ((sName.indexOf('ch') != -1) && (sName != boxname)) {
    idform.elements[i].checked = false
   }
  }
 }        
}
function unmark_all(idform) {
 idform.chm_all.checked = false
 idform.chu_all.checked = false
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
 <form name="myform">
  <input type="checkbox" name="ch_archive" onClick="unmark_all(this.form);">Archive<br>
  <input type="checkbox" name="ch_current" onClick="unmark_all(this.form);">Current<br>

Quick Question:  Can you recommened a book or website that talks about how to deal with the elements of checkboxes, forms, radio buttons, and the document object.  Things of this nature.  Anything would help.
