Topic: Indeterminate checkboxes not working

Marvin Herbold priority asked 2 years ago

When setting the "indeterminate" property of a checkbox to "true" the UI should render a "-" in the checkbox. It does not do this properly. See code snippet.

You can actually see the indeterminate "-" work if you right click on the checkbox. You can also briefly see it when you left click on the checkbox. However it does not render otherwise. Please fix or let me know if I am missing something.

Why would you not support indeterminate checkbox states? Native Bootstrap 5 supports it. MDB is supposed to be a superset or improvement of Bootstrap, not a subset and remove features from Bootstrap.

UNNdev is correct - this seems like a bug since doing certain actions does make the indeterminate state show up.

We will take this into consideration in our future releases.

As for now, we don't provide support for indeterminate checkbox. Maybe in the future we will add this functionality. But you can try this workaround from this snippet

Keep coding,

This is obviously a bug, as you do have support for it when the checkbox is focused.

This looks like a better work-around:
