New in version 1.4.0.

_images/checkbox.png

CheckBox is a specific two-state button that can be either checked or unchecked. If the CheckBox is in a Group, it becomes a Radio button. As with the ToggleButton, only one Radio button at a time can be selected when the CheckBox.group is set.

An example usage:

from kivy.uix.checkbox import CheckBox

# ...

def on_checkbox_active(checkbox, value):
    if value:
        print('The checkbox', checkbox, 'is active')
    else:
        print('The checkbox', checkbox, 'is inactive')

checkbox = CheckBox()
checkbox.bind(active=on_checkbox_active)
class kivy.uix.checkbox.CheckBox(**kwargs)[source]

Bases: kivy.uix.behaviors.togglebutton.ToggleButtonBehavior, kivy.uix.widget.Widget
