I have a click event that sets a checkbox to be checked, however it is targeting all the checkbox on the page with the same class.

I only want to target the checkbox that was clicked. Using Mootools.

var checkEmail = $$('input.user-address');
          $$(".content .addcheck").addEvent('click', function () {
              alert('test');
              checkEmail.set('checked',true);            
          });

You need to use a unique id for any checkbox that you want to target individually.  Any reference using a class name always targets every member of the class.

        this.getPrevious('input.user-address').set('checked',true);
