Class JCheckBox

Implemented Interfaces:
Accessible, ImageObserver, ItemSelectable, MenuContainer, Serializable, SwingConstants

public class JCheckBox
extends JToggleButton
implements Accessible

A small box that displays a check or not, depending on it's selected state. This works very similar to JToggleButton and JRadioButton, but in UI design it has different semantics. JCheckBoxes are usually used in multiple-choice scenarios, where a user can select 0..n of n different options. (This is in contrast to the general RadioButton semantics where the user can select exactly one of n options). Note however that this semantics is in no way enforced by the JCheckBox.
