TriStateCheckbox

Checkboxes can have a parent-child relationship with other checkboxes. When the parent checkbox is checked, all child checkboxes are checked. If a parent checkbox is unchecked, all child checkboxes are unchecked. If some, but not all, child checkboxes are checked, the parent checkbox becomes an indeterminate checkbox.

@Composable
fun TriStateCheckbox(
    state: ToggleableState,
    onClick: (() -> Unit)?,
    modifier: Modifier = Modifier,
    enabled: Boolean = true,
    colors: CheckboxColors = CheckboxDefaults.colors(),
    interactionSource: MutableInteractionSource? = null
)

Parameters

namedescription
statewhether this checkbox is checked, unchecked, or in an indeterminate state
onClickcalled when this checkbox is clicked. If null, then this checkbox will not be interactable, unless something else handles its input events and updates its [state].
modifierthe [Modifier] to be applied to this checkbox
enabledcontrols the enabled state of this checkbox. When false, this component will not respond to user input, and it will appear visually disabled and disabled to accessibility services.
colors[CheckboxColors] that will be used to resolve the colors used for this checkbox in different states. See [CheckboxDefaults.colors].
interactionSourcean optional hoisted [MutableInteractionSource] for observing and emitting [Interaction]s for this checkbox. You can use this to change the checkbox's appearance or preview the checkbox in different states. Note that if null is provided, interactions will still happen internally. @see [Checkbox] if you want a simple component that represents Boolean state
