CheckBox: Provide an option to have similar look across platforms
Currently RadCheckBox follows the guidelines of the operating system, meaning that on iOS it is visualized as circle and on Android and UWP - as square.

It is a common requirement to display single-choice options as a circle (as radio buttons) and multiple-choice items as squares or rounded squares.

Using a List view with a set of checkboxes as the control, it is possible to implement a set of options. Visually identifying them as single-choice options with circles or multiple-choice options with squares is not possible with the checkbox control as it is currently implemented.

Thank you for your input on this. I agree that in certain situations there should be consistency across platforms.

We're keeping an eye on the feature request and will schedule it if there is demand.

Consistency across platforms is particularly important for us. We are building a native mobile device that allows users to fill in custom web based forms that they build on our web application. This application allows them to fill have check boxes as well as radio buttons. While I understand native mobile devices don't necessarily have all of these components we still need to provide consistency across all of the platform when filling these forms out. 

We choose Telerik Xamarin UI because it gave us a way to have check boxes on both iOS and Android but the way they render on iOS makes them look identical to radio buttons.
