Checkbox in Jetpack Compose

Checkbox in Jetpack Compose - Coding Bihar
Checkbox in Jetpack Compose

Checkboxes are just like the buttons that allow the users to select one or more options from a set. We use checkbox options in a vertical list.
It can also be used to turn an option on or off for instance to on or off the flash light of our smartphones.

Checkbox is a two-states button checked (selected) or unchecked (not selected).

Checkboxes can have a parent-child relationship with other checkboxes. It means When the parent checkbox is checked, all the child checkboxes are checked. If a parent checkbox is unchecked, all child checkboxes are unchecked. If some, but not all, child checkboxes are checked, the parent checkbox becomes an indeterminate checkbox.
