Function signature

st.checkbox(label, value=False, key=None, help=None, on_change=None, args=None, kwargs=None, *, disabled=False, label_visibility="visible")


label (str)

A short label explaining to the user what this checkbox is for. The label can optionally contain Markdown and supports the following elements: Bold, Italics, Strikethroughs, Inline Code, Emojis, and Links.

value (bool)

Preselect the checkbox when it first renders. This will be cast to bool internally.

key (str or int)

An optional string or integer to use as the unique key for the widget. If this is omitted, a key will be generated for the widget based on its content. Multiple widgets of the same type may not share the same key.

help (str)

An optional tooltip that gets displayed next to the checkbox.

on_change (callable)

An optional callback invoked when this checkbox's value changes.

args (tuple)

An optional tuple of args to pass to the callback.

kwargs (dict)

An optional dict of kwargs to pass to the callback.

disabled (bool)

An optional boolean, which disables the checkbox if set to True. The default is False. This argument can only be supplied by keyword.

label_visibility ("visible" or "hidden" or "collapsed")

The visibility of the label. If "hidden", the label doesn't show but there is still empty space for it (equivalent to label=""). If "collapsed", both the label and the space are removed. Default is "visible". This argument can only be supplied by keyword.



Whether or not the checkbox is checked.
