I feel like this is a very simple question, but I have a checkbox at the end of a wizard I need to uncheck, but I would like the field to render unchecked without the user having to manually uncheck it.

Is there a basic rendering snippet I can use to uncheck the box?

For starters you could set the default value of the field to false. But assuming you want to use JavaScript, I would use a page load snippet, that runs when the page loads. Create a new snippet of type "inline" and add the following:

(function(skuid){    var $ = skuid.$;
// The name of the Model your checkbox is in 
        var model = skuid.model.getModel('YourModel');
var row = model.getFirstRow();
// replace YourFieldName with the API name of your checkbox
YourFieldName: false

If you always want the checkbox to be unchecked by default, Moshe's suggestion should work.

But if you only want to uncheck it when you get to a particular step (and otherwise have it remain checked) then you might want to build in the logic to un-check the checkbox into your Wizard Button.

Wizard Button can run a sequence of Actions --- using Skuid's "Action Framework". Just change the Action Type of your button to be "Run Multiple Actions". Add 2 Actions:

1. Update a field on row(s)
2. Navigate to Step

Action 1 can be used to uncheck your checkbox, and Action 2 will actually move the user to the step where the checkbox appears.

Here are screenshots of an example "Next Step" button i created in a wizard, where the next step is "step2", but it can be whatever step you want to go to.

NOTE: if the "Navigate to Step" option does not show up for you, make sure you are on Skuid 5.13 or higher --- if you're not, head to and install the latest release.
