<head>
<script>
function check()
{
 var check=document.getElementsByTagName('input');
 for(var i=0;i<check.length;i++)
 {
  if(check[i].type=='checkbox')
  {
   check[i].checked=true;
  }
 }
}

function uncheck()
{
 var uncheck=document.getElementsByTagName('input');
 for(var i=0;i<uncheck.length;i++)
 {
  if(uncheck[i].type=='checkbox')
  {
   uncheck[i].checked=false;
  }
 }
}
</script>
<style>
body
{
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 background-color:#424242;
 font-family:helvetica;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:100%;
}
h1
{
 margin-top:50px;
 color:#D8D8D8;
}
h1 p
{
 font-size:14px;
 color:white;
}
input[type="button"]
{
 background:none;
 color:white;
 border:1px solid white;
 width:100px;
 height:50px;
 border-radius:50px;
 margin:10px;
 font-weight:bold;
}
input[type="checkbox"]
{
 width:20px;
 height:20px;
}
td
{
 color:white;
 font-weight:bold;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">
<input type="button" value="Check All" onclick="check();">
<input type="button" value="Uncheck All" onclick="uncheck();">
<table align='center' cellspacing='10'>
 <tr>
  <td><input type="checkbox"></td><td>PHP</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><input type="checkbox"></td><td>HTML</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><input type="checkbox"></td><td>JavaScript</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><input type="checkbox"></td><td>jQuery</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><input type="checkbox"></td><td>CSS</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><input type="checkbox"></td><td>MySQL</td>
 </tr>
</table>
</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we define markups for checkboxes and made two buttons to check all and uncheck all checkbox.We create two functions check() and uncheck() to check and uncheck the checkboxes.In first function we get all the input elements and check if type is checkbox and if yes it check the checkbox.In second function it is same as first function only one thing is different it gets all the checkboxes and uncheck all of them.You may also like Live Character Count Using JavaScript
