Coral-checkbox default checked option

Avatar

Level 2

Default checked state is not appearing for coral checkboxes

"granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox"

but it's working fine for granite foundation one. i.e. granite/ui/components/foundation/form/checkbox.

 

I've tried many ways (e.g. checked (string) property setting as true, defaultChecked / uncheckedValue etc.) but nothing is working. One thing noticed that, "checked" property has type  ' booleanel ' while in JCR, only boolean is available;not the expression lang type. So,is it causing any issue?

 

 

Any pointers on this will be really helpful.

Hi,

Just use the below value to mark the checkbox prechecked.

checked(Boolean)=true

I think it is boolean, not booleanel. 

Have you tried:

uncheckedValue="{Boolean}false"

defaultChecked="{Boolean}true" 

Cheers,

Vishu

Hi @arunpatidar This configuration works for cases when I drag and drop new instance of a component. But we have a case when the component is already authored and a new checkbox is being introduced to the dialog of existing authored component. In such cases it does not work. Can you please help on such cases ?
