Checkbox

The Checkbox Web Control is an Input control that allows the selection of a single value.

General

Data Binding

Value

Expects type any.

The value that the bound variable will have when the checkbox is selected. When the checkbox is not selected, the value of this bound variable will be NULL.

Selected

Expects type boolean.

By default, a Variable of type Boolean is generated at the Web Page level to store the data from the input. Users can also edit the Data Binding property and create their own Variables.

Style and Layout

Checkboxes have styles for the following states:

Default - When first rendered without state
Hover - When the user is hovering over the Checkbox
Focused - when the Checkbox is focused
Pressed - when the Checkbox is being pressed
Selected - when the Data Binding evaluates to true
Disabled - When the Checkbox is disabled

Check Common style properties of web controls for further details on how to style your Checkbox Web Control.

Advanced

State

Is Visible

Expects type boolean.

If TRUE the checkbox will be visible. If FALSE the checkbox will not be displayed. If the field is empty, the checkbox will be visible.

Is Disabled

Expects type boolean.

If TRUE the checkbox will be disabled and the user will not be able to interact with the control. If FALSE the checkbox will be enabled. If the field is empty, the checkbox will be enabled.

Example #1

Checkboxes are commonly used for a single selection. Here, the Checkbox operates by itself, so add the Checkbox, and an automatically generated variable will hold its value.

Example #2

To be able to align the Checkbox with a line of text, a Selectable Container Web Control must be added first. Then add the Checkbox and Label describing the item it corresponds to.
