jQuery Mobile - Checkbox Horizontal group


Set the checkbox horizontally by including the data-type = "horizontal" to the fieldset. You can select the checkbox button more than one at a time.


Following example demonstrates the use of horizontal group 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>

      <h2>Horizontal Group Example</h2>
         <fieldset data-role = "controlgroup" data-type = "horizontal">
            <input type = "checkbox" id = "checkbox 1" />
            <label for = "checkbox 1">Checkbox 1</label>

            <input type = "checkbox" id = "checkbox 2" />
            <label for = "checkbox 2">Checkbox 2</label>

            <input type = "checkbox" id = "checkbox 3" />
            <label for = "checkbox 3">Checkbox 3</label>
