Form checkboxes example

Checkbox with exclusive item

Allows an option to become exclusive, as follows:

  • when the exclusive item is checked, all non-exclusive items are unchecked
  • when a non-exclusive item is checked, the exclusive item is unchecked

This behaviour should be doubled by similar checks on the backend.
