I forget to mention I am displaying checkboxes(in directly it is using the id value of item ..and i am getting these values form sql).

I tried to use the code mentioned above examples.

It didn't work for me.

Initially...
<tr><th>ID</th>
<th>Name</th></tr>
<tr><td>
<input type="checkbox" name="chk" value="<%= rs("id") %>"></td>
<td><%= rs("Name")%></td></tr>



After

<tr><th>ID<input type="checkbox" name="selectall" onclick="selectall()"></th>
<th>Name</th></tr>
<tr><td>
<input type="checkbox" name="chk" value="<%= rs("id") %>"></td>
<td><%= rs("Name")%></td></tr>


the select all function is not working

[code]function selectall () {  
  var elems = chk.form1.elements;  
  var checked = chk.checked;  
  var id = chk.id;  
  for (var i=0, n=elems.length;i<n;i++) {  
    if (elems[i].id && elems[i].id.indexOf(id)==0) {  
      elems[i].checked = checked;  
    }   
  }  
}  

Open in new window

try this as your selectall function:

function selectall() {
   var elems = document.form[0].elements;
   var elemsName = new String;

   for( var index = 0; index < elems.length; index++ ) {
        elemsName = elems[index].name;
        if( elemsName.indexOf( 'chk' ) > 0 )
             elems[ index ].checked = true;
   }

}

and if you want to make it a select/unselect all function, you can change it to:

function selectall() {
   var elems = document.form[0].elements;
   var elemsName = new String;

   for( var index = 0; index < elems.length; index++ ) {
        elemsName = elems[index].name;
        if( elemsName.indexOf( 'chk' ) > 0 )
             elems[ index ].checked = ( ! elems[ index ].checked );
   }

}
