Introduction

The Checkboxes (also known as textual checkboxes) are a set of state change buttons, ordered by columns and rows. Unlike the Toolbox Control more than one button can become active. Maximum number of checkboxes available for a single control is 32. It is possible to create more than 32 checkboxes, however over-the-limit checkboxes will just become duplicates. CT_CHECKBOXES fully inherits from CT_TOOLBOX, the difference is that with CheckBoxes one can make multiple selections or have no item selected. When CheckBoxes style is ST_PICTURE, the strings property is treated as array of textures, and checked_strings property is ignored.

AddOns: Classes need to be initialised first with class SomeClass;
Missions: Since Arma 3 v2.02 one can use import SomeClass; to initialise a class. In older versions, use "Default" call BIS_fnc_exportGUIBaseClasses; and paste the result into the description.ext.


Neither the export nor the configFile contains a base class for this control type.
