Create FirstComponent.vue and import it into App.js

Create the new component in the src/components/ components folder. the component name is FirstComponent.vue and imported into the App.js file:

App.js

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <FirstComponent />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import FirstComponent from "./components/FirstComponent.vue";
export default {
  name: "App",
  components: {
    FirstComponent,
  },
};
</script>

To add the checkbox we are going to use the form checkbox <b-form-checkbox> component. these components <b-form-checkbox-group> and <b-form-checkbox> use the bootstrap custom checkbox input to replace the browser default checkbox input.so it is a solid replacement for the default checkbox input.

1. Using options array:

For multiple checkboxes, we are going to use the checkbox group options array, and for these two b-form-group and b-form-checkbox-group components we are going to use option props. the option can be string, array, or object Available fields are:

  • Value The selected value which will be set on v-model
  • Disabled Disables item for selection
  • Text Display text, or HTML Display basic inline HTML

Let’s see the code example:

FirstComponent.js

<template>
  <div>
    <b-form-group label="Using options array:">
      <b-form-checkbox-group
        id="checkbox-group-1"
        v-model="selected"
        :options="options"
        name="flavour-1"
      ></b-form-checkbox-group>
    </b-form-group>


    <div>Selected: <strong>{{ selected }}</strong></div>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
  export default {
    data() {
      return {
        selected: [],
        options: [
          { text: 'Monday', value: 'monday' },
          { text: 'Tuesday', value: 'tuesday' },
          { text: 'Friday', value: 'friday' },
          { text: 'Sunday', value: 'sunday' }
        ]
      }
    }
  }
</script>

Let’s check the output.

2. Using sub-components:

For multiple checkboxes in the sub-component, we are going to manually place <b-form-checkbox> inputs that will appear below the checkbox inputs generated by the options prop. Let’s see the code example:

FirstComponent.js

<template>
  <div>
    <b-form-group label="Using sub-components:">
      <b-form-checkbox-group
        id="checkbox-group-2"
        v-model="selected"
        name="flavour-2"
      >
        <b-form-checkbox value="monday">Monday</b-form-checkbox>
        <b-form-checkbox value="tuesday">Tuesday</b-form-checkbox>
        <b-form-checkbox value="friday">Friday</b-form-checkbox>
        <b-form-checkbox value="sunday">Sunday</b-form-checkbox>
      </b-form-checkbox-group>
    </b-form-group>


    <div>Selected: <strong>{{ selected }}</strong></div>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
  export default {
    data() {
      return {
        selected: []
      }
    }
  }
</script>

Let’s check the output.
