At present, Wikidot's checkbox field for data forms will only display a 0 if unchecked or a 1 if checked. This can be rather unintuitive; for example, consider a page in which users are expected to document the abilities and skills of an Role Playing Game character. There may be a list of possible skills, like Double Strike or Indomitable, which the user may check or uncheck depending on whether the character has the skill.

Currently, though, using this method along with the %%form_data{field}%% yields the following:

Double Strike: 0
Indomitable: 1

This is obviously undesirable. Instead, you would want something that only shows the skill if it was checked, like so:


This can be easily achieved with the Togglecheck CSI.

If you find yourself using this, then you should definitely rate this wish up on Wikidot's feedback site!


[[include :snippets:togglecheck
|checked=Double Strike
[[include :snippets:togglecheck
