The Checkbox component

This component is not supported for Google Ads, Google AdMob, AMPHTML adsvideo ads, or image ads.

The Checkbox component lets you add checkboxes to your project. Users can check as many checkboxes as they like.

If you want users to select only a single option from a group of options, use the Radio Button component instead.

To use the Checkbox component in your project:

  1. Open the Components panel, then the UI folder.
  2. Drag the Checkbox  component to the stage.
  3. You may want to use the Label component to display text next to the checkbox.
  4. To detect when the checkbox changes between being checked and unchecked, set up an event. You can also create a custom action that only happens if the checkbox is checked.

Example custom action code

var confirmation_checkbox = document.getElementById('checkbox_1');
if confirmation_checkbox.checked {
  // Proceed with action only if checkbox is checked.


Property Description
Name The component name.
Checked When you select this property, the checkbox is checked by default.
Value The value of this checkbox when it's checked.
