Hello Experts,

Please see the following link for my progress so far:

Example

(To be honest, I have had to delete the jquery as I simply can't get it to work!)

I am trying to achieve the following:

When a user clicks on the Select all box, I want ALL the children (including any grandchildren etc) to be ticked. Likewise, if the user then untick the box, it should do the opposite.

Many thanks for any help!

try : http://jsfiddle.net/ZzTZP/

$(":checkbox", "li:contains('Select All')").click(function() {
    $(this).closest("ul").find(":checkbox").attr("checked", $(this).is(":checked") );
})

Open in new window


you may create/set a class for each checkbox "Select All" and use :

"li.selectAllClass" instead  "li:contains('Select All')"

Many Thanks.
As suggested, I added <li class="selectAll">
and changed the

$(":checkbox", "li:contains('Select All')").click(function() {

to

$(":checkbox", "li.selectAll").click(function() {
