Class Overview

A checkbox is a specific type of two-states button that can be either checked or unchecked. A example usage of a checkbox inside your activity would be the following:

 public class MyActivity extends Activity {
     protected void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
         super.onCreate(icicle);

         setContentView(R.layout.content_layout_id);

         final CheckBox checkBox = (CheckBox) findViewById(R.id.checkbox_id);
         if (checkBox.isChecked()) {
             checkBox.setChecked(false);
         }
     }
 }
 

See the Checkboxes guide.

Public Methods

public CharSequence getAccessibilityClassName ()

Added in API level 23

Return the class name of this object to be used for accessibility purposes.

This is used to fill in AccessibilityNodeInfo.setClassName.
