Form Checkbox component
npm version


An input that shows the site visitor if the option is selected or not.


Checkboxes can be used when a site visitor to select one or more options from a list in a form.

When to use

Use the .vf-form__checkbox when you want the site visitor to select 0, 1 or multiple options from the predefined list of checkboxes.

When not to use

Do not use the .vf-form__checkbox when you need a site visitor to only pick one option from the available selection. For this use case you should use the vf-radio button component.


A vf-form__checkbox must be accompanied by a vf-form__label inside a vf-form__item with the vf-form__item--checkbox variant.
You can also use the vf-form__helper to add some more descriptive, explanitory text under the vf-form__label. See the examples for the correct markup.
The .vf-form__checkbox needs to grouped into a vf-form__fieldset and using the vf-form__label to help the site visitor understand what they are choosing for.
Generally the vf-form__fieldset will use the vf-stack layout component to stack the vf-form__checkbox on top of each other. You can set these to be inline by using the vf-cluster layout component as well. See the examples for the correct markup.


This component is distributed with npm. After installing npm, you can install the .vf-form__checkbox with this command.
$ yarn add --dev @visual-framework/vf-form__checkbox
