        <Checkbox v-model="pizza" inputId="ingredient1" name="pizza" value="Cheese" />
        <label for="ingredient1" class="ml-2"> Cheese </label>
    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <Checkbox v-model="pizza" inputId="ingredient2" name="pizza" value="Mushroom" />
        <label for="ingredient2" class="ml-2"> Mushroom </label>
    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <Checkbox v-model="pizza" inputId="ingredient3" name="pizza" value="Pepper" />
        <label for="ingredient3" class="ml-2"> Pepper </label>
    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <Checkbox v-model="pizza" inputId="ingredient4" name="pizza" value="Onion" />
        <label for="ingredient4" class="ml-2"> Onion </label>

Checkboxes can be generated using a list of values.

<div v-for="category of categories" :key="category.key" class="flex align-items-center">
    <Checkbox v-model="selectedCategories" :inputId="category.key" name="category" :value="" />
    <label :for="category.key">{{ }}</label>

Invalid state style is added using the p-invalid class to indicate a failed validation.

<Checkbox v-model="checked" class="p-invalid" binary />

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

<Checkbox v-model="checked" disabled />
