Switch component. The switch can be toggled both by dragging and tapping. Will automatically displays a Material Design switch on Android devices.



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>

To disable the switch the disabled attribute is used.

<ons-switch disabled>

Getting the value

To get the value of an <ons-switch> element you need to get a reference to the DOM element and read the checked property.

var switch = document.getElementById('switch-1');
ons.notification.alert('Value is ' + switch.checked);
