Hi all,

I have some checkboxes on a page that by default I have checked when the page loads. I would like to add a "Select None" and "Select All" buttons to the bottom of the pages so the user can quickly deselect and select all the options:

Here's the format I currently have them in :


<li class="list">
      <img src="images/hak.jpg" height="100" width="120" />
      <label class="filter">Hak
      <input type="checkbox" name="checkbox1" value="2" checked/>
      </label>
 	  </li>  
      <li class="list">
      <img src="images/ges.jpg" height="100" width="120" style="" />
      <label class="filter">Ges
      <input type="checkbox" name="checkbox2" value="4" checked/>
      </label>
      </li>

        setAllCheckboxes(this.checked);
        document.getElementById("forchecky").innerHTML = this.checked?"Uncheck all":"Check all";
    }
}
