Need to use jQuery to toggle this jqGrid checkbox

I have the following code which I need to understand, then be able to toggle the checbox to unchecked.  I don't understand how at the same time there can be a filter, a return value, hiding and adding attributes, and WAI-ARIA support to boot.

So when I need to make the checkbox unchecked, I am confused.
I have not yet read about the t3() function, so a little explanation of that may help.

$("span[t3parent=global_select]", $("#mydata tr.jqgrow").filter(function (index) {
return $("td[aria-describedby=mydata_PermitAccess][title=true]", this).length == 0;
}).hide().attr("directaccess", "no")).attr("t3parent", "root");

So I need to do all this AND toggle the checkbox to unchecked.

Any help or explanation would be appreciated.

Thanks!

what is the checkbox id or the class?
Is there a reference to checkbox object in the code above?

No. I do not think so in that code above. But I started to write the following after drilling down with Firebug and was told I was "getting close" after writing the following:

$("td a.checkbox[aria-describedby=mydata_PermitAccess][title=true]").attr("checkbox", "unchecked");

I think my problem was here: attr("checkbox", "unchecked");

I wasn't sure of the syntax for the attr() function and think I do indeed need to find how to reference the class there. Not sure how...

check this one

$("td a.checkbox[aria-describedby=mydata_PermitAccess][title=true]").each(function(){
  if($(this).is(":checked"))
  {
     $(this).removeAttr("checked");
  }
});

Great. But where do I fit in the initial code in this post? I get confused by the return value, etc.
