In our previous blog, we discussed how to add the checkboxes in the list by adding Dummy field in the table.
Now, we would be discussing how to enable Select/Deselect all option in the Sage CRM list.

Sage CRM .NET SDK allows user to add Select/Deselect all option by using below 2 properties.

1. CheckBoxColumn
2. ShowSelectUnselectButton

Suppose below is the list object you are using in your code;
Sage.CRM.Controls.List objList = new Sage.CRM.Controls.List (<<List/Grid Name>>);

objList.CheckBoxColumn = “Select/Deselect“;
objList.ShowSelectUnselectButton = true;

Note:  User has to add both the properties in order to add the Select/Deselect all option in the list block.
Once this option is enabled, user can easily write a client side code to select all or deselect all check-boxes. Code snippet mentioned below.
<Snippet >

<script language=’javascript’>
function SelectDeselectall()
var checkboxes = new Array();
var chkValue= document.getElementById(‘_IDhInputSelectDeselect’).checked
checkboxes = document.getElementsByTagName(‘input’);

for (var i=0; i<checkboxes.length; i++)
if (checkboxes[i].type == ‘checkbox’)
if (chkValue==true)
checkboxes[i].checked = true;
checkboxes[i].checked = false;

Using this option, one can easily do bulk updates for the required grid item.
