    I need to select 3,600 checkboxes on a single page in Windows IE6. The only option available to me at the moment is to select them individually. Is there a way that I can select them all at the same time? ❓

    Hmmm – you seem to have a lot of interests or are you selecting porn titles to download ?

    Sorry its the end of the day and I have nothing sensible left to say 🙂

    unfortunately not, it’s a web-based reporting tool and there are 2 years of reports that I need to delete…

    AutoIt could probably help.

    not sure what that is, but can’t be writing any script

    …though I’d be tempted to hack it by seeing what request ticking a couple of boxes sent and sending the appropriate request for the lot (can’t remember what TCP/IP hacking tool I use offhand, as I’m in work where we’re not supposed to use such things).

    but can’t be writing any script

    Not even if it’s considerably quicker than doing it by hand?

    surely Firefox has a miracle solution?

    just paste this (and only this) into your address bar.

    javascript:var f=document.getElementsByTagName("input");for(var i=0;i<f.length-1;i++){if(f.type=="checkbox"&&!f.checked){f.checked=true}};void(0);

    just what I was thinking, except I’d have used for(var i in f) 🙂
