Getting Started


The jqxCheckBox widget displays a check box that allows the end-user to select a true, false or indeterminate condition.
Every UI widget from jQWidgets toolkit needs its JavaScript files to be included in order to work properly.

The first step is to create html page and add links to the javascript files and css dependencies to your project. The jqxCheckBox widget requires the following files:

The next step is to create a div element or input element with type attribute set to "checkbox" within the body of the html document.

The last step is to initialize the widget by adding the following script to the html document:

To call a function(method), you need to pass the method name and parameters(if any) in the jqxCheckBox’s constructor.
To set a property(option), you need to pass the property name and value(s) in the jqxCheckBox's constructor.
$("#jqxcheckbox").jqxCheckBox({ checked: true });
To get a property(option), you need to pass the property name to the jqxCheckBox's constructor.
var checked = $("#jqxcheckbox").jqxCheckBox('checked');
To bind to an event of a UI widget, you can use basic jQuery syntax. Let’s suppose that you want to get the CheckBox's state after the user clicks it. The example code below demonstrates how to bind to the ‘change’ event of jqxCheckBox.
$("#jqxcheckbox").on('change', function (event) {
    var checked = event.args.checked;
    alert('checked: ' + checked);

Basic Sample

The result of the above code is:
