Perspective - Toggle Switch

Component Palette Icon:


The Toggle Switch represents a bit: on (selected) or off (not selected). By default, when the switch is selected the color is blue. It is gray when it is not selected. Logically, this component is very similar to the Checkbox component.

New in 8.1.2

The DateTime Picker component has three pre-configured variants:

  • No Text - Default layout with no text.
  • Text Right - Layout with text on the right of the Toggle Switch.
  • Text Left - Layout with text on the left of the Toggle Switch.


Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective. This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.

    Component Events

    The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
