Check boxes allow one of two possible values to be entered as the content of a node. In this way the user can be constrained to select one of two specific values. When you insert a check box control, you can specify whether the check box should be to the left or right of the check box text, or in the default system position. Two key properties of the check box control are:


The text that accompanies the check box. This can be static text (entered as the value of the Text property; see below) or a dynamic value obtained via an XPath expression.

The values that are to be respectively assigned the checked and unchecked states of the check box. These are assigned with the Checked Values property (see below). To specify which node will receive the value, make a page source link from the check box to a page source node (by dragging the node on to the check box).


Check boxes have the OnFinishEditing event, which is triggered when the end-user makes a check box selection. To define an action for this event, click the Additional Dialog button of the Control Action property. This displays the Control Actions dialog, in which you can specify the required action.




Check Box events

The OnFinishEditing event is available. For a description of the actions that can be defined for this event, see the Actions section.

The control's properties are available in the Styles & Properties Pane, and are listed below in the order in which they appear.
