ASP.Net/VB.Net/DataList: How to reset all the checkboxes in a datalist

I have a web form that contains a datalist. Each cell of the datalist contains a checkbox. It looks something like this:

[ ] Select All
-----------------
[ ] Person A
[ ] Person B
[ ] Person C
[ ] Person D

The CheckBox.Text property gets its name from databinding to a Name field in a database. The checkbox value is unbound. What I intend to do is insert records into a table for each checked box.

When I turn on the Select All checkbox at the top I want all of the other check boxes to be turned on, and vice versa. What is the code for doing this?

Hi

  Do following
first set property AutoPostback = true of checkbox associate with selectAll and then write following in code behind

 Private Sub chkSelectall_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles chkSelectall.CheckedChanged
            Dim i
            If chkSelectall.Checked = True Then
                  For i = 0 To dgTest.Items.Count - 1
                        CType(dgTest.Items(i).FindControl("checkbox1"), CheckBox).Checked = True
                  Next
            End If
            If chkSelectall.Checked = False Then
                  For i = 0 To dgTest.Items.Count - 1
                        CType(dgTest.Items(i).FindControl("checkbox1"), CheckBox).Checked = False
                  Next
            End If
      End Sub

Hi Rohan,
your idea is good, but because of  "AutoPostback = true " it will need an extra trip to the server. and I guess it is not at all necessary just to check the CheckBoxes. Javascript will work at the client side and will save you from that extra postback
