How to check a CheckBox

Hello dear Vaadin Users,

I am facing a hopefully small problem. I created a table which has a generated column containing a checkbox. This CheckBox should be toggeled by a click on the CheckBox's column header. In order to do that I overrode the sort method and added the following code:

public void sort() {
[indent] Object superSortId = super.getSortContainerPropertyId();
if ("select".equals(superSortId) ) {
[indent] toggleSelectAll();
return ;[/indent]
} else {

protected void toggleSelectAll() {
[indent]selectAll = !selectAll;
for (CheckBox checkbox : checkboxes) {

The problem is that no matter what I do, I can't set the checkboxes to checked. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
