jQuery Mobile - Checkbox Basic markup


Checkbox can be created by using the <input> element with a type = "checkbox" attribute and a corresponding label. Include the input element inside the label element so that they are semantically associated.


Following example demonstrates the use of basic checkbox in the jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

      <div data-role = "page">
               <input type = "checkbox">CheckBox 1
               <input type = "checkbox">CheckBox 2
               <input type = "checkbox">CheckBox 3
