The QCheckbox component is another basic element for user input. You can use this to supply a way for the user to toggle an option.
Please also refer to the QOptionGroup on other possibilities for creating groups of Checkboxes.
In the second row in the example below, the property
keep-color is being used to retain the passed in color when the checkbox is not in a toggled state.
Dense and dark
Apart from the standard sizes below, you can define your own through the
size property (last one is a custom size).
In the example below, as soon as you click on the first checkbox it starts toggling between true/false. The second checkbox, on the other hand toggles between the three states (indeterminate/true/false) with help from
toggle-indeterminate. You can optionally set the property
indeterminate-value, otherwise the indeterminate value will be considered
Toggle order v1.12+
By default, QCheckbox follows this chain when toggling: indeterminate -> checked -> unchecked. However, you can change this behavior through the
toggle-order prop. This property determines the order of the states and can be
tf (default) or
t stands for state of true/checked while
f for state of false/unchecked).
Toggling order is:
toggle-indeterminateis true, then: indet -> first state -> second state -> indet (and repeat)
- otherwise (no toggle-indeterminate): indet -> first state -> second state -> first state -> second state -> …
Custom model values
You can also use QOptionGroup, which simplifies the usage when you have groups of checkboxes, like in example below.
In the example below, we are rendering a
<label> tag (notice
tag="label") so the QCheckbox will respond to clicks on QItems to change toggle state.
Native form submit v1.9+
When dealing with a native form which has an
action and a
method (eg. when using Quasar with ASP.NET controllers), you need to specify the
name property on QCheckbox, otherwise formData will not contain it (if it should) - all value are converted to string (native behaviour, so do not use Object values):
