Checkbox - This is the BOOLEAN data type and you can have it as various types when you add it to your form (checkbox, radio, select)

Radio List - This is either a FOREIGN KEY or ENUMERATION (or boolean if only two options). When you create your FORM, drag the field onto the brick, click the PROPERTIES button and you have a dropdown which has the options of LIST, COMBO, RADIO. Radio will do a radio list

I dont think there is a field type for checkbox groups / buttons but it is not much effort post coding to convert a radio list into a checkbox group

Check box is not proposed yet.

Radio button : you can change the control it in the properties, but the coming release is much improved for that.
This is available only for lists (FK, enums)

checkboxes refers to N:1 or N:M, wait few weeks it is coming soon.

The final rendering of Cook component can be improved for sure.
This is my preoccupation for next upgrades.
Coding is now a piece of cake

I'm testing the two fields, Bool and Enumeration.

The Bool has a checkbox option, but the Enumeration has not.

In case I need, is an Enumeration where items are boxes.

But I will wait for your next update.

The J-cook is very good, continue making improvements, I will recommend it to all my friends.
