php – How to create checkbox inside the form group selection HTML Javascript?

Posted by: admin February 22, 2020 Leave a comment


Currently, I have 200+ countries list in my database. I want to create a checkbox for the countries selection. Even I already put the html type as a checkbox, the checkbox still doesn’t exist in my selection form. How to create checkbox actually?


<div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-12">
                <div class="form-group">
                    <select class="form-control"  name="country_id[]" multiple  size="10" style="height: 100%;">
                        @foreach ($countries as $item)
                            <option value="{{$item->id}}" selected>{{$item->name}}</option>

This is current output

How to&Answer:

You cannot place checkbox inside select element but you can get the same functionality by using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

var expanded = false;

function showCheckboxes() {
  var checkboxes = document.getElementById("checkboxes");
  if (!expanded) {
    checkboxes.style.display = "block";
    expanded = true;
  } else {
    checkboxes.style.display = "none";
    expanded = false;
.multiselect {
  width: 200px;

.selectBox {
  position: relative;

.selectBox select {
  width: 100%;
  font-weight: bold;

.overSelect {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  right: 0;
  top: 0;
  bottom: 0;

#checkboxes {
  display: none;
  border: 1px #dadada solid;

#checkboxes label {
  display: block;

#checkboxes label:hover {
  background-color: #1e90ff;
  <div class="multiselect">
    <div class="selectBox" onclick="showCheckboxes()">
        <option>Select an option</option>
      <div class="overSelect"></div>
    <div id="checkboxes">
      <label for="one">
        <input type="checkbox" id="one" />First checkbox</label>
      <label for="two">
        <input type="checkbox" id="two" />Second checkbox</label>
      <label for="three">
        <input type="checkbox" id="three" />Third checkbox</label>

Also you can use Bootstrap Multiselect plugin.
