Checkbox Field Type

Renders a checkbox control inside the block.

The type we would use inside the schema’s field_meta property to render this field is “checkbox”: "type": "checkbox"

If you haven’t already, we suggest you read the “model.json file” and “Field Types” pages before continuing.

Minimum Schema needed to create the field

"should_show_title": {
  "type": "object",
  "field_meta": {
    "type": "checkbox",
    "label": "Toggle the Title"
  "default": {
    "checked": false

This snippet of code will generate a simple checkbox control for managing boolean data. The field name will be “should_show_title”, its label will be “Toggle the Title” and it will be false by default.

What it would look like inside the block in the editor.

Checkbox Field Type example | theme-redone

Rendering field’s data on the front-end:

We would use the same property that’s present inside the “default” object; "checked", in this case.
In latte, it would look something like this.

{if $should_show_title['checked']}
  <h3>This is a Title</h3>

Or, even shorter, like this:

<h3 n:if="$should_show_title['checked']">This is a Title</h3>

Additional / Optional field_meta properties

Besides the optional properties help (explained on Field Types page), and col (explained on model.json page), this field type doesn’t have its own optional properties at this point.
