TriStateCheckbox is an extension to the Checkbox component with an additional state.

import { TriStateCheckboxModule } from 'primeng/tristatecheckbox';

A model can be bound using the standard ngModel directive.

<p-triStateCheckbox class="p-tristatecheckbox-label" [(ngModel)]="value" inputId="tricheckbox"></p-triStateCheckbox>

TriStateCheckbox can also be used with reactive forms. In this case, the formControlName property is used to bind the component to a form control.

<form [formGroup]="formGroup" class="flex flex-column align-items-center gap-3">
    <p-triStateCheckbox formControlName="checked" inputId="checked"></p-triStateCheckbox>
    <label class="p-tristatecheckbox-label" for="checked">{{ formGroup.value.checked === null ? 'null' : formGroup.value.checked }}</label>

When disabled is present, the element cannot be edited and focused.

<p-triStateCheckbox [(ngModel)]="value" [disabled]="true"></p-triStateCheckbox>

Screen Reader

TriStateCheckbox component uses an element with checkbox role. Value to describe the component can either be provided with ariaLabelledBy or ariaLabel props. Component adds an element with aria-live attribute that is only visible to screen readers to read the value displayed. Values to read are defined with the trueLabel, falseLabel and nullLabel keys of the aria property from the locale API. This is an example of a custom accessibility implementation as there is no one to one mapping between the component design and the WCAG specification.

<span id="chkbox1">Remember Me</span>
<p-triStateCheckbox ariaLabelledBy="chkbox1"></p-triStateCheckbox>

<p-triStateCheckbox ariaLabel="Remember Me"></p-triStateCheckbox>
