Adding checkbox controls (HTML)

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

A checkbox is a control that the user can check or uncheck by tapping, clicking, or pressing the space bar on the keyboard. Most checkbox controls have two states, checked and unchecked, but some checkbox controls support a third, indeterminate state.

Use checkbox controls to present users with an individual choice, one or more options that are not mutually exclusive, or a mixed choice. The topics in this section describe how to create and use checkbox controls.
