Checkbox is not rendered as a slider on IPAD



When developing for a Pega Mobile application, checkboxes should be rendered as binary sliders (on or off elements). However, within Repeating Dynamic Layout sections, the same controls are rendered unexpectedly as checkboxes.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

Add checkboxes in a Repeating Dynamic Layout Section and view the section on IPad.

Root Cause

The check box has no style to change the background. The css is set on the label (py-mobile-controls.css) . Hence, to change the look of the checkbox one must specify a label for the checkbox.


Add caption "" to checkbox. The checkbox now appears as a slider.
