I am trying to get a pretty large form I generate from a database to be able to "check All" or "check None".
I would like to have at the top a checkbox that would check or uncheck every box on the form.
I have sections that I would like to have a check box at the top of each section that would check or check all the items in that section.

I have a jquery script that will check and uncheck the whole form, but I can't figure out how to call a section at time.  
I am using php/MSSQL to create the form -- so there variable amounts of sections depending on the page before.

Right now I put the check box id equal to the "StdId"(the name of the section), but if it makes it easier - it can be anything -- I pass the same value in the value field.

Attached is a sample of the output with the jquery that works for all the checkboxes.   I like the "indeterminate" state of the checkbox -- not sure if that is HTML or jquery.
