It will just take you less than 2 minutes to create iphone style checkbox out of normal checkbox. Just follow these steps and you are done.

  • Attach checkswitch.css file.
  • Attach Jquery min file and checkswitch.js file.
  • Add class “checkSwitch” to checkbox
  • Lastly, after page loads call checkSwitch() function.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/checkswitch.css" />

You can easily customize the ON and OFF text labels. All you have to do is open checkswitch.js file and edit the ON and OFF text.
<!-- Replace On and Off Text -->
$(this).append('<div class="checkSwitchInner"><div class="checkSwitchOn">On</div><div class="checkSwitchHandle"></div><div class="checkSwitchOff">Off</div></div>');

<!--I have replaced it to Yes and No -->
$(this).append('<div class="checkSwitchInner"><div class="checkSwitchOn">Yes</div><div class="checkSwitchHandle"></div><div class="checkSwitchOff">No</div></div>');
