Checkbox

Vue Bootstrap 5 Checkbox component

Vue checkbox is a component used to allow a user to make multiple choices that are broadly used in forms and surveys. Checkboxes are used to select one or several options in a list, while radio (option) buttons are for selecting one option from many.


Basic example

Browser default checkboxes and radios are replaced with the help of .form-check, a series of classes for both input types that improves the layout and behavior of their HTML elements, that provide greater customization and cross browser consistency. Checkboxes are for selecting one or several options in a list, while radios are for selecting one option from many.


          <template>
            <MDBCheckbox label="Default checkbox" v-model="checkbox1" />
            <MDBCheckbox label="Checked checkbox" v-model="checkbox2" />
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBCheckbox } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";
            import { ref } from "vue";

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBCheckbox
              },
              setup() {
                const checkbox1 = ref(false);
                const checkbox2 = ref(true);

                return {
                  checkbox1,
                  checkbox2
                };
              }
            };
          </script>
        

Disabled

Add the disabled attribute and the associated <label>s are automatically styled to match with a lighter color to help indicate the input’s state.


          <template>
            <MDBCheckbox label="Disabled checkbox" disabled v-model="checkbox3" />
            <MDBCheckbox label="Disabled checked checkbox" disabled v-model="checkbox4" />
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBCheckbox } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';
            import { ref } from 'vue';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBCheckbox,
              },
              setup() {
                const checkbox3 = ref(false);
                const checkbox4 = ref(true);

                return {
                  checkbox3,
                  checkbox4,
                };
              },
            };
          </script>
        

Inline

Group checkboxes or radios on the same horizontal row by adding inline property to any MDBCheckbox.


          <template>
            <MDBCheckbox label="1" inline />
            <MDBCheckbox label="2" inline />
            <MDBCheckbox label="(disabled)" inline disabled />
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBCheckbox } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBCheckbox,
              },
            };
          </script>
        

Without labels

Omit the wrapping .form-check for checkboxes and radios that have no label text by adding :formCheck="false". Remember to still provide some form of label for assistive technologies (for instance, using aria-label).


          <template>
            <MDBCheckbox aria-label="..." :formCheck="false" />
            <MDBCheckbox aria-label="..." :formCheck="false" />
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBCheckbox } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBCheckbox,
              },
            };
          </script>
        

Toggle buttons

MDB’s .btn styles can be applied to <label>s, to provide checkbox style button toggling. Add :btnCheck="true" to any MDBCheckbox.


          <template>
            <MDBCheckbox
              tag="span"
              :btnCheck="true"
              labelClass="btn btn-primary"
              label="Checkbox button"
              v-model="checkbox5"
            />
            <MDBCheckbox
              tag="span"
              :btnCheck="true"
              labelClass="btn btn-primary"
              label="Checkbox button"
              v-model="checkbox6"
            />
            <MDBCheckbox
              tag="span"
              :btnCheck="true"
              labelClass="btn btn-primary"
              label="Checkbox button"
              v-model="checkbox7"
            />
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBCheckbox } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';
            import { ref } from 'vue';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBCheckbox,
              },
              setup() {
                const checkbox5 = ref(false);
                const checkbox6 = ref(true);
                const checkbox7 = ref(false);

                return {
                  checkbox5,
                  checkbox6,
                  checkbox7,
                };
              },
            };
          </script>
