Checkbox items with conditional reveal

Checkboxes can be configured to show additional elements when checked. This could include further components, such as text inputs as shown.

Note that if you do insert HTML, this may cause accessibility violations if the additional elements have different name attributes to the checkboxes. No styling will be applied to the inserted content by the component.
