What is the checkbox array in the DOM?

I have a form with a couple of listboxes and a lot of checkboxes.  I am looking to make all of these checkboxes unchecked.

i.e.
for (var i=0; i<document.form.checkbox.length; i++)
  {
  document.form.checkbox[i].checked = false;
  }

However, whenever I run this, I get an error that says that document.form.checkbox.length is null or not an object.

The only thing I can think of is that checkbox is not the array in the DOM that I am looking for.

What is the correct syntax for this?

BTW  The checkboxes are not the same name, nor can they be the same name.

try this

for( intIndex = 0; intIndex < document.formname.length; intIndex++ )

{

   if( document.formname[ intIndex ].type  == "checkbox" )
   {
      document.formname[ intIndex ].checked = false;
   }
}


or


for( intIndex = 0; intIndex < document.all.length; intIndex++ )

{

     if( document.all( intIndex ).type == "checkbox" )
     {
          document.all( intIndex )checked = false;
      }
}

Here's a technic to uncheck all checkboxes.

for (var c = 0; c < document.form.elements.length; c++)
   if (document.form.elements[c].type == 'checkbox')
      document.form.elements[c].checked = false;
