Toggle Checkboxes using JQuery ( Select All/Select None )

When user clicks Select All checkbox, the code first checks the status of checkbox with id select-all, and loops though each checkbox with class checkbox update their checked property to true. When it is clicked again then it will update their checked property to false.

1. HTML Code

<input type="checkbox" id="select-all"/> Select All
<input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="chk[]" value="1"> 1
<input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="chk[]" value="2"> 2
<input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="chk[]" value="3"> 3

2. JQuery code

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#select-all').click(function(event) {
    	var btn = this, toStatus = btn.checked;
    	//loop through each checkbox
        $('.checkbox').each(function() { 
            $(this).prop('checked', toStatus);
        });
    });
});
