When you say click are you asking

a) How to click that checkbox with script
or
b) When that box is clicked how to check all the other checkboxes?

If you want to target the checkbox in the first row then

$('.table-class tr:first-child td.column-id :checkbox').prop({'checked': true});

Open in new window

so how would I run this exactly

On page load you can determine if a checkbox is checked by simply adding checked to the input
 
<input type="checkbox" name="vehicle" value="Car"   checked   > 

Open in new window


If you want the checkbox to be check only when an action is done then you need to use javascript to add the checked to the input
in my example the user need to click on a button then the checkbox that have the specific ID is selected.

The trigger is the click of a button , this could be anything like click on a table row, a tab ...  
I have update the example so one of the input is checked on page load
