Foundation - Checkboxes and Radio Buttons


  • Checkboxes can be used for selecting multiple options from a list; radio button can be used to select only one option.

  • Enclose a set of checkboxes and radio buttons in a fieldset element and provide them a common text by using the legend element.

  • Every single control in fieldset element must have separate label, which can be created using a label tag.


The following example demonstrates the use of checkboxes and radio buttons in Foundation.
