In general application with tabular data, may have selected using a checkbox on each row. In that case, there should be a master checkbox to check/uncheck all table rows.

A user can check/uncheck all rows using a single master checkbox on the header.

Add following HTML template with a table having a header with master checkbox and body with rows each with a checkbox

        $(function () {

            // Header Master Checkbox Event
            $("#masterCheck").on("click", function () {
                if ($("input:checkbox").prop("checked")) {
                    $("input:checkbox[name='row-check']").prop("checked", true);
                } else {
                    $("input:checkbox[name='row-check']").prop("checked", false);

            // Check event on each table row checkbox
            $("input:checkbox[name='row-check']").on("change", function () {
                var total_check_boxes = $("input:checkbox[name='row-check']").length;
                var total_checked_boxes = $("input:checkbox[name='row-check']:checked").length;

                // If all checked manually then check master checkbox
                if (total_check_boxes === total_checked_boxes) {
                    $("#masterCheck").prop("checked", true);
                else {
                    $("#masterCheck").prop("checked", false);
