Checkbox on webbrowser control

When I need to check a checkbox in a webbrowser control I usually:

WebBrowser2.Document.All.Item("the_value").Checked = True

But in this case, the name is strange:

        <input value="8041787595" type="checkbox" name="photos[group1.photo_ids]" />

Any Ideas?

Looks like server-side (asp/php) error - seems developer expected set the name from an array 'photos' by 'group1.photo_ids' index but by mistake use string variable "photos[group1.photo_ids]" in quotes instead of photos[group1.photo_ids] value.
To get the DOM element you can use it as a string
WebBrowser2.Document.All.Item("photos[group1.photo_ids]").Checked = True
but when developer correct his mistake you'll need change it to real name which stored on server in photos[] array

function selectAll(invoker) {

            var IsChecked = invoker.checked;
            var inputElements = document.getElementsByTagName('input');

            if (invoker)
                for (var i = 0; i < inputElements.length; i++) {
                    var myElement = inputElements[i];

                    if (myElement.type === "checkbox") {

                        if (IsChecked) {
                            if (!myElement.checked) {
                               //do waht you want
                            }

                        }
                        else {
                            if (myElement.checked) {
                               //do waht you want
                            }

                        }
