Try this function

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

Hope this helps

You may use this :

      function setCheckboxes(groupName, state) {
            var checkboxes = document.getElementsByName(groupName);
            for(var i=0;i

If you cannot use the name of the checkboxes, we may use a class for each one (again, not for the first one which check or uncheck all) : group1

      function setCheckboxes(groupName, state) {
            var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
            for(var i=0;i<inputs.length;i++) {
                  if(inputs[i].getAttribute("class") && inputs[i].getAttribute("class").indexOf("group1")>=0) {
                        inputs[i].checked = state;
                  }
            }
      }

Might be possible in PHP, too.  Just test the checkbox named "all" and use its state to set the other checkboxes, or use something like this:

if ($checkboxOne or $checkboxAll) /* DO SOMETHING */
if ($checkboxTwo or $checkboxAll) /* DO SOMETHING ELSE,,, */
