How to get started easily with Syncfusion Angular 11 Check box?

6 mins read

A quick start project that helps you to create an Angular 11 Checkbox with minimal code configurations.

The following section explains you how to create a simple angular 11 Check Box component.



Before start, we need following items to create Angular Check Box in Angular 11 application.



  1. Install Angular cli 11 using following command.


npm install -g @angular/cli@11.2.3



If you would like to follow and run the application in Angular 6 or Angular 5 or Angular 4, you need to replace the CLI command version number with the corresponding angular version number.


npm install -g @angular/cli@<CLI VERSION>



  1. Create a new Angular 11 project using angular cli and navigate to that folder.


ng new angular11-app

cd angular11-app


Adding Angular Checkbox


  1. After running the Angular 11 application successfully, configure the Angular CheckBox in this application. Install Angular CheckBox and EJ2 package using following command. 


npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons –save


The --save command will instruct the NPM to include a CheckBox package inside the dependencies section of the package.json.

  1. Import the CheckBox from installed package.
  2. Import and inject the other required modules within the providers section of app.module.ts.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { CheckBoxModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';





  declarations: [



  imports: [




  providers: [],

  bootstrap: [AppComponent]


export class AppModule {}


  1. Add the given below angular checkbox’s styles in styles.css.


@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";


  1. Add the angular CheckBox component in app.component.ts.


import { Component } from '@angular/core';



    selector: 'app-root',

    template: `<ejs-checkbox label='Default'></ejs-checkbox>`


export class AppComponent {}


  1. Now serve the application using following command.


ng serve 


Once the files are compiled successfully, it will serve the site at localhost:4200




Change the CheckBox state


The CheckBox checked property is used to handle the checked and unchecked state. In checked state a tick mark will be added to the visualization of CheckBox.



CheckBox indeterminate state can be set through indeterminate property. CheckBox indeterminate state masks the real value of CheckBox visually. CheckBox cannot be changed to indeterminate state through the user interface, this state can be achieved only through the property.


import { Component } from '@angular/core';



    selector: 'app-root',

    template: `<ul>

                  <li><ejs-checkbox label="Checked State" [checked]="true"></ejs-checkbox></li>

                <li><ejs-checkbox label="Unchecked State"></ejs-checkbox></li>

               <li><ejs-checkbox label="Indeterminate State" [indeterminate]="true"></ejs-checkbox></li>




export class AppComponent { }
