The OP asked a vague question, some comments ensued (from 4 down, here they are):
There are many, many ways to do it. It completely depends on the implementation you are using for checking/unchecking the cells. This question is too vague to answer in its current form. You'll have to be more specific. – PengOne
i know how to program, i just needed an idea of how to do this because ive already tried but i didnt succeed so i asked for help. – kurt moyer
@kurt: OK, but please review the SO FAQ for guidelines about how to ask questions here. Please be specific and post relevant code. – PengOne
@PengOne you = cockSucker - kurt moyer
@kurt: There is no need to be rude or offensive. I am merely trying to help you understand how SO works, and how to ask effective questions that receive helpful answers. – PengOne
that doesnt mean ur not a cocksucker!!! :P haha – kurt moyer
The question had a score of -5 last time I checked.
Here's the question: How should one handle a situation such as this?
Here's what I did: I flagged his first offensive comment before responding. Then I flagged his second offensive comment and do not intend to respond further. I probably should have ignored the question and moved on, and I'll work on doing that in the future.
Any suggestions for what should have been done differently to keep the situation from deteriorating?
