What Does This Widget Do?
The Checkbox widget allows you to select an option.
When Should I Use This Widget?
Use a Checkbox when:
You want to give the experience user multiple choices.
You want to give the experience user a checklist. For example, if there are several prerequisites that must be done before a service technician can service a machine, use checkboxes to ensure that the technician meets all requirements before they begin to service the machine.
You want to present the user with a setting or property that they can enable or disable.

Triggered when the checkbox is deselected.
The Widget in Action
Here’s an example of what your widget might look like!
Minimum Steps Required for Use
What It Looks Like
1. Drag and drop a Checkbox widget onto the canvas. For this example, we’ve added four checkboxes to the canvas.
2. Enter a label or the text you want displayed for the checkbox in the Label field. For this example, we’ve entered PTC product names.
Style the Widget with CSS
You can use CSS to style the widget! The following is an example of a CSS class you could create and apply:
Keep in mind that it’s best to give your classes unique names so they do not conflict with other classes or OOTB properties.
