Auto increment VALUE attribute extension - Macromedia Exchange Dreamweaver Extensions

I was wondering if there was such an extension or a built in tool for Dreamweaver that searches for all <INPUT> tags of TYPE 'checkbox' and sets a unique value for the VALUE attribute. Example: I have 3 checkboxes as follows: <INPUT ID="chkOption1" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="checkbox" /> <INPUT ID="chkOption2" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="checkbox" /> <INPUT ID="chkOption3" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="checkbox" /> and I want the end result to change the VALUE attribute as follows: <INPUT ID="chkOption1" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="1" /> <INPUT ID="chkOption2" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="2" /> <INPUT ID="chkOption3" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="3" /> Problem is that I have thousands of those checkboxes instead of 3.

    Default Auto increment VALUE attribute extension

    I was wondering if there was such an extension or a built in tool for
    Dreamweaver that searches for all <INPUT> tags of TYPE 'checkbox' and sets a
    unique value for the VALUE attribute.

    Example:

    I have 3 checkboxes as follows:

    <INPUT ID="chkOption1" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="checkbox" />
    <INPUT ID="chkOption2" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="checkbox" />
    <INPUT ID="chkOption3" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="checkbox" />

    and I want the end result to change the VALUE attribute as follows:

    <INPUT ID="chkOption1" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="1" />
    <INPUT ID="chkOption2" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="2" />
    <INPUT ID="chkOption3" TYPE="checkbox" VALUE="3" />


    Problem is that I have thousands of those checkboxes instead of 3. So I was
    thinking maybe there is a value incrementing tool available somewhere that
    someone might know of that ps through all checkboxes or input tags.

    I hope that explains it. Thanks in advance guys.

    Default Re: Auto increment VALUE attribute extension

    I think I know what you are wanting. You want to find and replace all the
    <input> tags or rather checkbox value. Well the only simple way is to go to the
    edit menu in Dreamweaver 8 and go down to: find and replace. Set it up so that
    is covers the entire website not just the page you are working on. You will
    need to put in the find box this code:

    VALUE="checkbox" />

    Then in the replace box:

    VALUE="what ever value" />

    maybe this will help, hope it does!
