The Switch control is presented as a toggle that allows selecting one of two possible values: on or off. It is one of the built-in controls and can be selected from the Control Type property.

It may be used as a replacement for the traditional Check Box control, and it's available for Panels and for Web Panels as well.

Web Panels

Only the Abstract Layout supports this control.
