Switches

A switch is an UI element that can be used to toggle between two states.

The state of a switch in Onsen UI can be changed both by dragging the knob and by tapping on the switch.

To make the switch enabled by default you can use the checked attribute just like with radio buttons and checkboxes.

<ons-switch checked>
</ons-switch>

To disable the switch the disabled attribute is used.

<ons-switch disabled>
</ons-switch>

Getting the value

ons-switch can be combined with ng-model in order to bind its value with a scope variable.
