Touch UI dialog

<application-type-list jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/multifield" fieldDescription="Click the '+' to add a new Product Type" fieldLabel="Product Type"> <field jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/fieldset" acs-commons-nested="" name="./productType"> <layout jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/layouts/fixedcolumns" method="absolute"/> <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"> <column jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/container"> <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"> <description jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/textfield" fieldDescription="Enter Description" fieldLabel="Description" key="description" name="./description" width="350"/> <showdescription jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/checkbox" text="Show Affiliated Society" key="showAffiliatedSociety" value="true" name="./showAffiliatedSociety"/> <showdescriptionType jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/hidden" name="./showdescription@TypeHint" key="showdescription" value="Boolean"/> </items> </column> </items> </field> </application-type-list>

They are different data types.  

The Touch UI checkbox is based on: 

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-2/develop/ref/granite-ui/api/jcr_root/libs/granite/ui/component...

The Classic UI one is based on this data type: 

https://docs.adobe.com/content/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/widgets-api/index.html?class=CQ.form.Checkbox

So each one will work for the given checkbox on a dialog in their respective views.
