Check Box

  • 2 minutes to read

The ASPxCheckBox control is a check editor that allows users to select yes/no or true/false conditions. Users can click the editor with a mouse or press the SPACE key when the editor has focus to switch the check state.


ASPxCheckBox offers the following features:

  • Three State Support

    The check box’s default functionality allows users to set the editor to the checked or unchecked state. Additionally, you can enable the third grayed (indeterminate) state using the ASPxCheckBox.AllowGrayed property.

  • Native Rendering

    ASPxCheckBox supports native rendering as a native HTML input element of the checkbox type. In native HTML mode, the control’s appearance depends on how a client browser renders native HTML elements. This reduces the render size and improves the editor’s overall performance. Set the ASPxCheckBox.Native property value to true to enable native rendering.

  • Custom Images

    The check box allows you to display different images (check marks) for each check box state (checked, unchecked or indeterminate).


  • Two Appearance Styles for iOS Theme

    You can display ASPxCheckBox as a toggle switch in the iOS DevExpress theme. To enable this appearance, set the editor’s SkinID property to Switch.


  • Built-in Validation

    The ASPxCheckBox control allows you to validate data on both the client and server sides. See the following topic to learn more: Validation.

  • Full-Featured Client-Side API
