How To Pre-Check Checkboxes Matching Criteria For Bulk Edit

Recommended Posts

The script below can be inserted into a footer. It preselects all rows with a value greater than 1, so that they can be Bulk Edited.


It loops for a field in a tabular datapage with a class of cbResultSetTableCellNumberDate, and then it looks for the value of the text of those cells that match. On my datapage, I have just 1 column with numerical data, so I don't need a more specific selector than that...


Then, it jumps up to the Row of the matching cell, then down to the first element in the Row (the cell that holds the checkbox), then down again to the checkbox itself, then uses a click event to check the box.


To make use of Bulk Edit, a click event must be used, and not 

document.getElementById("checkbox").checked = true;

    because Bulk Edit is grayed out until there is a click (not a change) event.



<script type="text/javascript">


var elems = document.querySelectorAll(".cbResultSetTableCellNumberDate");

for (var i=0, m=elems.length; i<m; i++) {

 if (elems.innerText >= 1) {
