Empty Checkbox Handling

Checkboxes used to send a particular value when unchecked can be achieved by using data-empty-value="0". If this attribute is omitted, an empty string '' is sent.

<!-- ... or (using CSS selector) ... -->
<input type="checkbox" data-global-event="change" data-action-submit="#formIdentifier">
