Best way to create a dynamic list of checkboxes?

Post by patrickstinson » Wed Dec 23, 2015 4:13 pm

I have a device that detects tracks that have a Looper device, and I want to dynamically create a UI with a checkbox for each track with the track number to enable/disable a feature for that track. Any ideas on how this is possible?

We would need more details... from what i read here i would advice : live.toggle. But that's probably not what you're looking for...

I want to create a dynamic list of checkboxes (say up to 12 or so) at runtime based on conditions within my script. I'm looking for a creative way to create a UI like this. scroll box? javascript to create checkboxes? A special control I don't know about?
