I posted this last week and got a really great solution from lilPuffball.  But, I screwed up in making the example I posted too nice and need - sequential numbers, everything in order and such.  However the real application has no such niceties to work with. All the names and values are as they are in the real application.  So here goes the explanation...

This is an part of a much larger application.  In this piece, the user can select a group of items or individual items and these selections, when submitted, are then used in a number of database queries in other parts of the site.  The current functionality only has the selections being gathered, sorted and then posted back to the parent page.

The additional functionality I'm needing is:
1 - When a group is selected, all the indivual parts of the group are selected too.  Conversely, if all the pieces of a group are individually selected, the group needs to be checked when all the elements of that group have been checked.

When the popup is closed:
1 - All distinct values need to be counted and passed back to the parent
2- A count of the selected groups need to be passed to the parent on submission.
3 - When submitted, if any groups are selected, those names need to be passed back to the parent as well.

For the cherry on top - this is the most important part of all
Once values have been passed to the parent, if the popup is launched again, the popup need to have all the groups and individual boxes selected that were previously passed.

I know this is huge but I'm SOL on getting this to work on my own.  I wish I could offer more than point - heck I wish I could offer more than 500 points.  I hope someone can take this on as I really need some assistance on this!

Code is below - thanks very, very much for any help!

Wow - this looks about 99.9% perfect.  Is there a way to make it so that if you check all the checkboxes of a group, it also checks the group?

By the way,  Bread 2 has the same name as Fruit 12 and Bread 3 has the same name as Fruit 14.. Which is why you see some weird behavior when you check the 'Fruit' group.  I'm assuming that this is just a typo of yours.  If they had unique names it would work fine.
