Checkbox in grid visual issue


I wanted to know if there is a way to show the "outline" of the checkbox in a bool datatype in the gird?

with Version 2016.2, the column shows nothing when the bool value is false, and shows a "check mark" if the value is true.

With our using version 2015.1 previously, a bool datatype would show a checkbox in the cell, which gave our users an indication that they can make changes to the value.

Attached is an example using 2016.2, without a visual checkbox indicator for "false" values.

If you change the file to use version 2015.1, you will see the checkbox indicator in the field.

Any ideas how we could easy show to our user that the bool data fields are an actual checkbox?

    Hello Ben,

    Thank you for contacting Infragistics!

    You can achieve this by adding the following style to your page/stylesheet:

    <style type="text/css">
      .ui-igcheckbox-container > span {
       border: 2px solid grey;

    Please let me know if you have any further questions concerning this matter.
