React-checkbox-group

Heavily inspired from https://github.com/chenglou/react-radio-group

Build Status

This is your average checkbox group:

<form>
  <input onChange={this.handleFruitChange} type="checkbox" name="fruit" value="apple" />Apple
  <input onChange={this.handleFruitChange} type="checkbox" name="fruit" value="orange" />Orange
  <input onChange={this.handleFruitChange} type="checkbox" name="fruit" value="watermelon" />Watermelon
</form>

Repetitive, hard to manipulate and easily desynchronized. Lift up name and onChange, and give the group an initial checked values array:

import {Checkbox, CheckboxGroup} from 'react-checkbox-group';

<CheckboxGroup name="fruits" value={['kiwi', 'pineapple']} onChange={this.fruitsChanged}>
  <Checkbox value="kiwi"/>
  <Checkbox value="pineapple"/>
  <Checkbox value="watermelon"/>
</CheckboxGroup>

Listen for changes, get the new value as intuitively as possible:

<CheckboxGroup name="fruit" value={['apple','watermelon']} onChange={this.handleChange}>
...
</CheckboxGroup>

and further

function handleChange(newValues) {
  // ['apple']
}

That's it for the API! See below for a complete example.

Install

bower install react-checkbox-group

or

npm install react-checkbox-group

Simply require/import it to use it:

var Check = require('react-checkbox-group');
var Checkbox = Check.Checkbox;
var CheckboxGroup = Check.CheckboxGroup;

// or ES6
import {Checkbox, CheckboxGroup} from 'react-checkbox-group';

Example

var Demo = React.createClass({
  getInitialState: function() {
    return {
      fruits: ['apple','watermelon']
    };
  },

  componentDidMount: function() {
    // Add orange and remove watermelon after 5 seconds
    setTimeout(function() {
      this.setState({
        value: ['apple','orange']
      });
    }.bind(this), 5000);
  },

  render: function() {
    // the checkboxes can be arbitrarily deep. They will always be fetched and
    // attached the `name` attribute correctly. `value` is optional
    return (
      <CheckboxGroup
        name="fruits"
        value={this.state.fruits}
        onChange={this.fruitsChanged}>

        <label><Checkbox value="apple"/> Apple</label>
        <label><Checkbox value="orange"/> Orange</label>
        <label><Checkbox value="watermelon"/> Watermelon</label>
      </CheckboxGroup>
    );
  },
  fruitsChanged: function(newFruits) {
    this.setState({
      fruits: newFruits
    });
  }
});

ReactDOM.render(<Demo/>, document.body);
