Checkbox Field Properties
The properties panel allows the App Designer to further customize how the checkboxes will be presented to the user.
|Basic Tab / General Settings|
|Option Orientation||Select Vertical or Horizontal. Note: For Horizontal the options may wrap onto further rows if the options require more width than is available to the control.|
|Sorting direction||Select None, Asc (Ascending) or Desc (Descending). Note: All values are treated as text when sorting. Also, selecting None after using the sort options will leave the options in the last sorted order, though they can then be manually reordered.|
|Advanced Tab / Conditional Visibility – See Conditional Visibility|

|Reorder the current option by moving it up or down the option list. Only available when using the Properties panel.
Note: The top and bottom options only have a single arrow, a down and an up respectively. When Asc or Desc sorting is selected the reordering arrows do not display.

Note: If Asc or Desc sorting is selected, the new option will be created wherever “Option ?”, where “?” is the number of the option, would sort in the list.
