i need a javascript or jquery syntax that can check a checkbox with matching text. For example - if i have "Film" as text coming as parameter from different page then out of MultiSelect DropDownList, the one which matches "Film" text should get checked. dynamically.

What I have tried:

I have already tried this "jQuery('.editbutton').click(function($) {
    jQuery(this).closest('tr').find('[type=checkbox]').prop('checked', true);

jQuery('"+Name+"').closest('input').find('[type=checkbox]').prop('checked', true);

= value will be received from different page (as a query string)
