Reference Properties

Properties can be accessed from other frontend components and backend APIs by adding the name of the Checkbox, and dot referencing the property. For a Checkbox named Checkbox1:

Checkbox1.isVisibleReturns the boolean value of the component's visibility (True, if it is visible)
Checkbox1.isDisabledReturns the boolean value of the component's disabled state (True, if it is disabled)
Checkbox1.isCheckedReturns the state of the checkbox (True, if it is checked)


The following events are triggered by user interactions with Checkbox components. Use event handlers to trigger actions in response to user events.

onCheckChangeTrigger an action when the checkbox is clicked
