Simple pleasures with jQuery

Somethings it’s the simple things in life that make you really happy.  For me yesterday, that was thanks to jQuery.  Have you ever wanted to have a check box that, when the user checks it it also checks a lot of other checkboxes?  Yeah, of course you have!  I wanted to do that yesterday.  Now, it’s not the first time I’ve had to do that kind of functionality, but it always came with a bunch of javascript that seemed over the top for what was wanted.  With jQuery it just took a line or two of code!

    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#selectall').click(function() {
        	$(":checkbox", $('#checkboxlist')).attr('checked', $(this).is(':checked')); 
        });
    });

And with that, on and off go the other checkboxes.

Marvelous!
