I have a .NET form with two links (select all / none) that should check / uncheck all the checkboxes from a checkboxlist. Unfortunately, there's a bug in my selector and the checkboxes remain unchanged. My source is below.

Can someone tell me where my error is?

Thanks in advance.

You did'nt use the same case : pid and pID

function checkAll(pid, check) {
