How to use Switch Group Widget

Content properties

These properties are customizable options present in the property pane of the widget, allowing users to modify the widget according to their preferences.


Options array<object>

This property allows you to set the labels and values for the options. Ensure that the values assigned to each option are unique.

You can add these labels and values options in JSON format, like:

"label": "Option1",
"value": "OPTION1"
"label": "Option2",
"value": "OPTION2"

Additionally, you can dynamically display data from a query using JavaScript. For instance, you can use the .map() function to transform the data to the desired format, like:

{{ p => ({label:, value:}))}}

Default Selected Values string

Allows you to set default options in a widget. These options are initially selected when the widget is loaded, representing the user's default input unless modified. Multiple default options can be added by providing them as an array of values.




Text string

Sets the label on the widget.

Position string

This property allows you to configure the label's placement.


  • Auto: Automatically positions the label based on the widget type and layout.
  • Left: Aligns the label to the left side of the widget.
  • Top: Positions the label above the widget.

Alignment string

This property is only available when you select Left from the Position property. It allows you to align the text to the left boundary or adjust it closer to the widget using the Right alignment option.

Width number

This property is only available when you select Left from the Position property. It allows you to control the proximity of the text to the widget, determining how close or far it can be positioned.


Required boolean

This validation feature allows you to designate the Switch Group as a mandatory field. For instance, when the widget is placed within a Form widget, enabling the Required property ensures that the Form's submit button remains disabled until the Switch Group is turned on/off.


Tooltip string

This feature enables you to add hints or provide additional information to guide the user regarding the required input.

Visible boolean

This property controls the visibility of the widget. If you turn off this property, the widget would not be visible in view mode. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Visible property to conditionally control the widget's visibility.

Disabled boolean

This property prevents users from selecting the widget. Even though the widget remains visible, user input is not permitted. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Disabled property to control the widget's disable state conditionally.

Inline boolean

When the inline property is enabled, the options are displayed horizontally within the widget. When this property is turned off, the options are displayed in a vertical format.

Animate Loading boolean

This property controls whether the widget is displayed with a loading animation. When enabled, the widget shows a skeletal animation during the loading process. Additionally, you can control it through JavaScript by clicking on the JS next to the property.

Height string

This property determines how the widget's height adjusts to changes in its content. There are three available options:

  • Fixed: The widget's height remains as set using drag and resize.
  • Auto Height: The widget's height adjusts dynamically in response to changes in its content.
  • Auto Height with limits: Same as Auto height, with a configurable option to set the minimum and maximum number of rows the widget can occupy.



This event defines the action that would be executed when the user selects or deselects multiple or single options in the switch group. It allows you to specify a list of actions that can be triggered in response to the switch state change.

Style properties

Style properties allow you to change the look and feel of the widget.

Represents the text color of the widget, specified as a CSS color value. It can also be manipulated programmatically using the JavaScript functions.

It allows you to specify how the label should be positioned relative to the switch.


Accent color string

Reference properties

These properties are not available in the property pane, but can be accessed using the dot operator in other widgets or JavaScript functions. For instance, to get the visibility status, you can use SwitchGroup1.isVisible.

selectedValues array

The selectedValues property holds an array of values that represents the options selected by the user.




Widget property setters enable you to modify the values of widget properties at runtime, eliminating the need to manually update properties in the editor.
