Checkbox / React

Enables users to pick multiple options from a group.

To implement Checkbox component into your project you’ll need to add the import:

import Checkbox from "@kiwicom/orbit-components/lib/Checkbox";

After adding import into your project you can use it simply like:

<Checkbox label="Checkbox" />


Table below contains all types of the props available in Checkbox component.

Name Type Default Description
checked boolean false If true, the Checkbox will be checked.
disabled boolean false If true, the Checkbox will be set up as disabled.
dataTest string Optional prop for testing purposes.
hasError boolean false If true, the border of the Checkbox will turn red. See Functional specs
info React.Node The additional info about the Checkbox.

Functional specs

  • The hasError prop will be visible only when the Checkbox has checked or disabled prop set on false.

  • ref can be used for example auto-focus the elements immediately after render.

import * as React from "react";

class Component extends React.PureComponent<Props> {
  componentDidMount() {
    this.ref.current && this.ref.current.focus();

  ref: { current: React.ElementRef<*> | null } = React.createRef();

  render() {
    return <Checkbox ref={this.ref} />;
  • The tooltip property is useful when you need to visually attach Tooltip component only to the Checkbox’s glyph, not the label or other parts of the Checkbox.
