Can't controlClick checboxes

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to click checkboxes in a webpage.
They are in a  list.

?? what can I use to controlClick them?

There are 20 of them like the following:

<td headers="ErrorId"><input type="checkbox" name="errorIdList" tabindex="10" value="2024438782" id="errorIdList1" /></td> 

<td headers="ErrorId"><input type="checkbox" name="errorIdList" tabindex="13" value="2024438781" id="errorIdList2" /></td>
... up to errorList20                                    


when I use the info tool, I get this:

Look in the help  file for the _IE_* functions.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
