type = 'check'


This type creates checkbox(es).

There can be between 1 and 31 checkboxes. The corresponding database field must be of type integer. Each checkbox corresponds to a single bit of the integer value, even if there is only one checkbox.


This means that you should check the bits of values from single-checkbox fields and not just whether it is true or false.


Resorting the 'items' of a type='check' config results in single items moving to different bit positions. It might be required to migrate existing field data if doing so.

The following renderTypes are available:

  • default: One or more checkboxes are displayed.

  • checkboxToggle: Instead of checkboxes, a toggle item is displayed.

  • checkboxLabeledToggle: A toggle switch where both states can be labelled (ON/OFF, Visible / Hidden or alike). Its state can be inverted via invertStateDisplay
