Checkbox

How can I, on button click, to select ONLY the following 4 checkbox?

I would like to do this without a for loop through form.lenght because
this is only an example and I have to apply this script on a 10k+ lines
page and IE, looping through a form with 20k+ elements is VERY SLOW.

<body>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input type="button" name="Submit" value="Select"
onclick="sel(next_four_elements);">
<input type="checkbox" name="1">
<input type="checkbox" name="2">
<input type="checkbox" name="3">
<input type="checkbox" name="4">
<br>
<br>
<input type="button" name="Submit" value="Select"
onclick="sel(next_four_elements);">
<input type="checkbox" name="5">
<input type="checkbox" name="6">
<input type="checkbox" name="7">
<input type="checkbox" name="8">
</form>
</body>
</html>
I was thinking about

<pseudo-code>

function sel(w){
/* select following 4 elements after you */
}

</pseudo-code>
Any help much appreciated.

Regards.

Will this help? Watch for word-wrap.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Documento senza titolo</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script type="text/javascript">
function sel(beg,end) {
for (var i=beg; i<end+1; i++) {
document.getElementById(i).checked = true;
}
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input type="button" value="Select" onclick="sel(1,4);">
<input type="checkbox" name="1">
<input type="checkbox" name="2">
<input type="checkbox" name="3">
<input type="checkbox" name="4">
<br>
<br>
<input type="button" value="Select" onclick="sel(5,8);">
<input type="checkbox" name="5">
<input type="checkbox" name="6">
<input type="checkbox" name="7">
<input type="checkbox" name="8">
</form>
</body>
</html>

You probably don't want
name="Submit"
on all of the buttons!

If you're only concerned with IE (5+) then

/* getNextElement(o, t)
*
* This moves from sibling node to sibling node trying to find
* elements. The returned elements can be restricted by name.
*
* Input:
* o - The position within the tree where the search will begin.
* This node will not be returned as a match.
* t - An optional string that specifies the name of an element
* type. Only these elements will be returned. If any element
* should be matched, either pass null or nothing at all.
*
* If no matching siblings are found, the return value is null.
*
* Note: If t is a string, it will be converted to uppercase before
* being compared to a node. That makes this particular
* version unsuitable for XML documents without modification.
*/
var getNextElement = (function() {
function isS(o) {return 'string' == typeof o;}
function isE(o, t) {var r;
if((r = (o.nodeType == 1))) {
if(isS(t)) {r = (o.nodeName == t);}
}
return r;
}
return function(o, t) {
if(!o) {return null;}
if(t) {t = String(t).toUpperCase();}
do {o = o.nextSibling;} while(o && !isE(o, t));
return o;
};
})();

function sel(node) {
for(var i = 0; (i < 4) && node; ++i, node = getNextElement(node)) {
node.checked = true;
}
}

called with

<input type="button" ... onclick="sel(this);">

will suffice. It will also work with other browsers, but it wouldn't be
quite so appropriate on the Web.

Hope that helps,
Mike

This is like yours, but the boxes are renamed and sel() takes a
parameter :-

<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input type="button" name="Submit" value="Select"
onclick="sel('x');">
<input type="checkbox" name="x0">
<input type="checkbox" name="x1">
<input type="checkbox" name="x2">
<input type="checkbox" name="x3">
<br>
<br>
<input type="button" name="Submit" value="Select"
onclick="sel('y');">
<input type="checkbox" name="y0">
<input type="checkbox" name="y1">
<input type="checkbox" name="y2">
<input type="checkbox" name="y3">
</form>

<script>
function sel(z) { var j
for (j=0;j<4;j++) form1.elements[z+j].checked=true }
</script>

Works in IE4 (in my js-quick.htm, naturally); AFAIK, should work in
others.
