Check Multiple Checkboxes in one click using jQuery

This is useful if you want to “delete” or “update” multiple rows in a table at the same time. This works like the “Check All Email” in YahooMail.

$(document).ready(function() {
    //check all checkboxes
    $("#check_all_boxes").click(function() {
    //uncheck all checkboxes
    $("#uncheck_all_boxes").click(function() {
    //reset the search form
    $("#reset_button").click(function() {
        $("#search_form input").each(function(i) {

And the HTML Code is:

< input class="mycheckbox" name="a" value="1" type="checkbox" />Number 1
< input class="mycheckbox" name="b" value="1" type="checkbox" />Number 2
< input class="mycheckbox" name="c" value="1" type="checkbox" />Number 3
< a href="#" id="#check_all_boxes">Check All< / a>
< a href="#" id="#uncheck_all_boxes">Uncheck All< / a>
