Hey experts,

  What's the property in HTML to set to indicate if an input of type checkbox is checked or no?

Well there's two properties that control that.  If your talking about setting the checked status during runtime via script then you're talking about the checked property, to check all checkboxes on the page the function would look like this:

function checkAll()
{
   var inputs=document.getElementsByTagName("input");
   for(var i=0;i<inputs.length;i++)
   {
      if(inputs[i].type=="checkbox")
           inputs[i].checked=true;
   }
}

...however, if you want to set the checkboxes state in the tag, it's slightly different, no need to specify boolean value just include the word checked in the tag deffinition like so:

<input type="checkbox" id="someCheckbox" name="someCheckbox" checked>

Cheers,

JI
