jQuery to Check Uncheck  Select Deselect all items in Asp.net CheckBoxList on click of Select All CheckBox Introduction: In this article i am going to explain How to Check/Uncheck or we can say Select/Deselect all the items (CheckBoxes) in CheckBoxList at once on click of single Check All/Select All checkBox in Asp.net using jQuery

 Note: In this article you will learn the following:
  • How to check/uncheck all the items in CheckBoxList(Skills) by clicking on a CheckBox.(Select All)
  • How to check "Select All checkbox" if all the items in "Skills CheckBoxList" is checked
  • How to uncheck "Select All checkbox" if any of the items in "Skills CheckBoxList" is unchecked 
Description: While working on asp.net project i got the requirement to implement the functionality where user has to select his technical skills by selecting from the various skills. So I placed a CheckBoxList control populated with various skills and also placed a CheckBox control for Select All options so that user can select and deselect all the skills at once if required. Here in this article example you will learn how to perform this task easily using jQuery.

Implementation:  Below is the HTML Source of the page having the controls and jQuery script required for this demonstration.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
        //Check all/UncheckAll skills if Select All is Checked/UnChecked
            $("#<%=chkSelectAll.ClientID %>").click(function () {
                $("[id*=chkSkills] input:checkbox").prop('checked', this.checked);

            $("[id*=chkSkills] input:checkbox").click(function () {
            //If Select All checkbox is checked but Skill checkbox is unchecked then uncheck
                if ($("#<%= chkSelectAll.ClientID %>").prop('checked') == true && this.checked == false) {
                    $("#<%= chkSelectAll.ClientID %>").prop('checked', false);
                else {
                    var flag = true;
                    //If any of the Skills Checkbox is unchecked then also Uncheck Select All Checkbox
                    $("[id*=chkSkills] input:checkbox").each(function () {
                        if (this.checked == false)
                            flag = false;
                    //If all of the Skills Checkbox is checked then also check Select All Checkbox
                    $("#<%= chkSelectAll.ClientID %>").prop('checked', flag);
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <fieldset style="width:250px;">
    <legend>Select your technical skills</legend>
      <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSelectAll" runat="server" Text="Select All" />
