Switch style button

In some cases I have need of a true/false or on/off selection.

Currently I am doing that through drop down options however it would be more natural in some cases to have a switch style button.

... regarding theming an implementation as Telerik Blazor control would be preferrable

I was looking for a slide switch control to manage binary input, similar to the ones common to many mobile apps. I found the following that does a pretty good job using a bit of HTML and some clever CSS. If anyone is looking for something similar you might like to give this a try. Here's the link:

Good luck!

Hi Bryon,

You could style your own elements (spans, divs, li elements, whatever) and use a simple expression in their class list to determine whether to add a class that denotes active state, something like this: https://github.com/telerik/blazor-stocks/blob/master/Client/Components/StocksChart/TopAreaContainer.razor#L16

I think this will be easier than hacking at the styles of <button> elements, while at the same time attaching an @onclick is exactly the same for a <span> and <button> in Blazor.

I am also interested in this.  I converted a dropdown of three options to a row of three small icon buttons.  Programatically, I can track the state of each button with corresponding bool variables.  But what I can't figure out is how to manage the visual style of each button to appear in a pushed state verses not-pushed state.

Yes, whether it is a button or a checkbox I guess is a different conversion.
Essentially something that toggles true/false or on/off.

I am sure I could do that currently through some CSS magic however having it as a drop in control would obviously be easier.

Hello Patrick,

I was thinking about this in terms of functionality, not in terms of all possible UI implementations. If I understand you correctly, you want checkboxes that can look like this: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/switch/index. Am I correct?

This would certainly work however visually I was thinking of an actual switch.

Hi Patrick,

A dropdown with two options is one choice, another common choice is a checkbox.

Here's an example how you can style checkboxes with our theme:

 

    <ul>
        <li>
            <input type="checkbox" id="cb1" class="k-checkbox" checked="checked">
            <label class="k-checkbox-label" for="cb1">Option 1</label>
        </li>
        <li>
            <input type="checkbox" id="cb2" class="k-checkbox">
            <label class="k-checkbox-label" for="cb2">Option 2</label>
        </li>
        <li>
            <input type="checkbox" id="cb3" class="k-checkbox" checked="checked" disabled="disabled">
            <label class="k-checkbox-label" for="cb3">disabled checkbox</label>
        </li>
    </ul>

If this is not what you are looking for, could you provide some more details and examples?
