KendoReact Checkbox Overview

The KendoReact Checkbox lets the user toggle between checked, unchecked and the optional indeterminate states.

The Checkbox is designed to replace the <input type="checkbox"> HTML5 tag and provides the KendoReact specific styling.


The CheckBox is typically used to represent boolean values via a binary checked state. All regular input type="checkbox" HTML attributes are applicable.
