One way would be to use the aoColumns property of datatables and just render your markup for the "sTitle" property as an html string.

http://www.datatables.net/usage/columns

//On datatable init the options would look something like this
"aoColumns": [{   "sTitle": "<input type='checkbox' id='selectAll'></input>"}]
Then you could just wire up a handler to the header checkbox after the datatable is created to check/uncheck all the checkboxes;

So something like:

$("#selectAll").toggle(function () {
       $("checkboxSelector", dataTable.fnGetNodes()).attr("checked", true); }
     , function () {
         $("checkboxSelector", dataTable.fnGetNodes()).attr("checked", false);
     }
 );

Since you don't have any code to work with, then I will leave it up to you to integrate this code below into yours:

<script type="text/javascript">
$('#checkall').click( function() {
$('input', oTable.fnGetNodes()).each( function() {
$('input', oTable.fnGetNodes()).attr('checked','checked');
} );
return false; // prevent page refresh
} );
</script>

Open in new window


//markup
<form id="checkall"><input type="submit"/></form>

Open in new window
