Check all / uncheck all checkboxes with regards to usability

For a couple of applications one can find a checkbox to select/unselect all items in a list. As soon as you click it, all the items in the list will be selected or unselected. IMHO thats wrong, because the checkbox should indicate a state and no action. What's your opinion about it?


You are absolutely right. clicking a checkbox must not carry out an action immediately. In this case a button must be used.
