Checkboxes allow users to select multiple items from a list of individual items, or to mark one individual item as selected.


npx nextui-cli@latest add checkbox
The above command is for individual installation only. You may skip this step if @nextui-org/react is already installed globally.








The isIndeterminate prop sets a Checkbox to an indeterminate state, overriding its appearance and maintaining it until set to false, regardless of user interaction.

Custom Check Icon

By default, IconProps will be passed to your icon component. Please make sure that isSelected, isIndeterminate, and disableAnimation are not passed to a DOM element.


Note: NextUI Checkbox also supports native events like onChange, useful for form libraries such as Formik and React Hook Form.


  • base: Checkbox wrapper, it handles alignment, placement, and general appearance.
  • wrapper: An inner container that includes styles for relative positioning, flex properties, overflow handling and managing hover and selected states.
  • icon: Icon within the checkbox, controlling size, visibility, and changes when checked.
  • label: The text associated with the checkbox.

Custom Styles

You can customize the Checkbox component by passing custom Tailwind CSS classes to the component slots.

Custom Implementation

In case you need to customize the checkbox even further, you can use the useCheckbox hook to create your own implementation.

Note: We used Tailwind Variants to implement the styles above, you can use any other library such as clsx to achieve the same result.
