The sbb-checkbox component provides the same functionality as a native <input type="checkbox"/> enhanced with the SBB Design.


It is possible to provide a label via an unnamed slot; the component can optionally display a sbb-icon using
the iconName property or via custom SVG using the icon slot.
The icon can be placed before or after the label based on the value of the iconPlacement property (default: end).

<sbb-checkbox value="checkbox">Example</sbb-checkbox>

<sbb-checkbox value="icon" icon-name="tickets-class-small">Icon</sbb-checkbox>

<sbb-checkbox value="start-icon" icon-name="tickets-class-small" icon-placement="start"
  >Icon at start</sbb-checkbox


The component could be checked or not depending on the value of the checked attribute.

<sbb-checkbox value="checked-checkbox" checked>Checked state</sbb-checkbox>

It has a third state too, which is set if the indeterminate property is true.
This is useful when multiple dependent checkboxes are used
(e.g., a parent which is checked only if all the children are checked, otherwise is in indeterminate state).
Clicking on a sbb-checkbox in this state sets checked to true and indeterminate to false.

<sbb-checkbox value="indeterminate-checkbox" indeterminate="true">Indeterminate state</sbb-checkbox>

The component can be displayed in disabled or required state by using the self-named properties.

<sbb-checkbox value="required-checkbox" required="true">Required</sbb-checkbox>

<sbb-checkbox value="disabled-checkbox" disabled="true">Disabled</sbb-checkbox>


The component has two size, named s (default) and m.

<sbb-checkbox value="size" size="m">Size</sbb-checkbox>

The component's label can be displayed in bold using the sbb-text--bold class on a wrapper tag:

<sbb-checkbox value="bold">
  <span class="sbb-text--bold">Bold label</span>


Consumers can listen to the native change event on the sbb-checkbox component to intercept the input's change;
the current state can be read from event.target.checked, while the value from event.target.value.


The component provides the same accessibility features as the native checkbox.

Avoid adding other interactive controls into the content of sbb-checkbox, as this degrades the experience for users of assistive technology.

Always provide an accessible label via aria-label for checkboxes without descriptive text content.
If you don't want the label to appear next to the checkbox, you can use aria-label to specify an appropriate label.

<sbb-checkbox aria-label="Subscribed to email message"></sbb-checkbox>
