A checkbox element. The component will automatically render as a Material Design checkbox on Android devices. Most attributes that can be used for a normal <input type="checkbox"> element can also be used on the <ons-checkbox> element.



Checkboxes are defined using the <ons-checkbox> element. The element works almost exactly as when you use a normal <input type="checkbox"> element.

<ons-checkbox value="something" checked></ons-checkbox>

Inner input element

For normal input elements is possible to define a <label> tab with the for attribute to link it to an input element.

Unfortunately this does not work with custom elements like <ons-label> so in order to do it we need to set the id attribute of the inner input element. This is done using the input-id attribute.

<label for="username">Username</label>
<ons-input input-id="username"></ons-input>

This work with any input in Onsen UI such as checkboxes, radios, etc.
