Checkbox Object

A checkbox object is used to capture a yes/no answer from a user. It only has two options for the user: checked and unchecked.


  • Caption: The text displayed beside the checkbox.
  • Hide Caption: If you’re just labeling your control for your own information but don’t want the text to show in the live screen, check this box.
  • Load State: The default state of the control:(regular/hidden/disabled)
  • Initially set to Checked: This means the checkbox will appear checked when the screen loads.
  • Check Alignment: Have the checkbox on the left or the right of the caption.
  • Width: How wide should your control be in relation to the screen?  
    • Auto: object will be the width of the text and/or icon
    • Fixed: assign the width of the object in pixels 
    • Full: object will be full width of the section or cell it has been dragged into


  • Checkbox size: Choose the size of the checkbox, from xxx-small to xxx-large.
  • Background color: Set the background color of the checked box from the preset Method palette.  
  • Caption color/size/text alignment: Choose the color, size, and alignment of the text in your caption.


The only event associated with this checkbox is the Change event.

This event triggers when a user checks or unchecks the box.
