Dynamic Multi Selection Checkbox In SharePoint Framework (SPFx)

Step by step procedure to create multi selection checkbox in a dialog window using SharePoint Framework.

This blogs explains the step by step procedure to create a multi select checkbox using Sharepoint framework client side webpart (SPFx). I am using "Office UI Fabric React" controls to style the buttons. The values are stored as a semicolon separated in SharePoint list.

Code Usage
 
I have created a React component and named it as "Dialog.tsx" as shown below.
 
Import the below node modules to your solution. Here, I have used UrlQueryParameterCollection to retrieve the ListItemId which is passed as a querystring parameter. 
  1. import * as React from 'react';    
  2. import { ISpFxRichTextEditorProps } from '../ISpFxRichTextEditorProps';    
  3. import { PrimaryButton, DefaultButton, DialogType, Dialog, DialogFooter, TextField, Label } from 'office-ui-fabric-react';    
  4. import * as $ from "jquery";    
  5. import { UrlQueryParameterCollection } from '@microsoft/sp-core-library';     
Declare the state variables as shown below.
  1. export interface IDialogState {    
  2.       hideDialog: boolean;    
  3.       spanID:string;    
  4.       dialogID: string;    
  5.       standard:string;    
  6.       isDraggable: boolean;    
  7.       typeOfWorkTemparr:any[];    
  8.       typeArr:any[];  
  9. }   
Declare global arrays to hold the value.
  1. var typeofworkarr=[];  
  2.   
  3. var multiTypeOfWorkChkBox=[];  
Bind events in constructor class as shown below
  1. public constructor(props: ISpFxRichTextEditorProps) {  
  2.   
  3.         super(props);  
  4.   
  5.         this.HandleTypeOfArray=this.HandleTypeOfArray.bind(this);  
  6.   
  7.     }  
Initiate the state variables and populate the type of work values on load.
  1. public state: IDialogState = {  
  2.     hideDialog: this.props.dialogOpen,  
  3.     isDraggable: false,  
  4.     spanID: this.props.spanID,  
  5.     dialogID: this.props.id,  
  6.     standard: this.props.standard,  
  7.     /** Type of Work Values */  
  8.     typeOfWorkTemparr: [{  
  9.         name: 'Revision',  
  10.         key: 'Revision',  
  11.         label: 'Revision',  
  12.         isChecked: false  
  13.     }, {  
  14.         name: 'Design',  
  15.         key: 'Design',  
  16.         label: 'Design',  
  17.         isChecked: false  
  18.     }, {  
  19.         name: 'Maintainence',  
  20.         key: 'Maintainence',  
  21.         label: 'Maintainence',  
  22.         isChecked: false  
  23.     }, {  
  24.         name: 'Scan Print',  
  25.         key: 'Scan Print',  
  26.         label: 'Scan Print',  
  27.         isChecked: false  
  28.     }, {  
  29.         name: 'Locate Print',  
  30.         key: 'Locate Print',  
  31.         label: 'Locate Print',  
  32.         isChecked: false  
  33.     }, {  
  34.         name: 'File Print On Drive',  
  35.         key: 'File Print On Drive',  
  36.         label: 'File Print On Drive',  
  37.         isChecked: false  
  38.     }, {  
  39.         name: 'Plot/Print',  
  40.         key: 'Plot/Print',  
  41.         label: 'Plot/Print',  
  42.         isChecked: false  
  43.     }],  
  44.     typeArr: []  
  45. };  
Get the values of Dialog Label and sub text label from parent component. 
  1. private labelId: string = getId('dialogLabel');  
  2. private subTextId: string = getId('subTextLabel');  
Declare the Render function as shown below
  1. public render() {  
  2.         const {  
  3.             hideDialog  
  4.         } = this.state;  
  5.         let inputchkbox;

Using  "DialogBox.tsx" component  in parent.
 
Import "DialogBox.tsx" reusable component in your parent file as shown below. 
 
Note
I have placed the DialoBox.tsx file under ReactDialogBox folder and hence the below path.
 
If you are not using Folder structure you can directly import the child component without giving the folder name. 
  1. import DialogBox from './ReactDialogBox/DialogBox';  
Declare the state variable in your parent state as shown below. 
  1. export interface ISpFxRichTextEditorState {  
  2.       clicked: boolean;  
  3.       listName: string;  
  4.       dialogTitle: string;  
  5.       spanID: string;  
  6.       DialogId: string;  
  7.       standard:string;  
  8.       isValidArea:string;  
  9.       toolpriorityinput:string;  
  10.       Safety:string;  
  11.     }  
Declare the props in your parent props as shown below. 
  1. export interface ISpFxRichTextEditorProps {  
  2.       id?:string;  
  3.       value?:string;  
  4.       dialogOpen?:boolean;  
  5.       spanID?:string;  
  6.       listName?:string;  
  7.       standardText?:string;  
  8.       onUpdate?:any;  
  9.       standard?:string;   
  10.     }  
In the parent constructor class, declare the below state variables 
  1. constructor(props:  ISpFxRichTextEditorProps, state: ISpFxRichTextEditorState) {  
  2.     super(props);  
  3.       
  4.     this.state = {  
  5.         clicked: false,  
  6.         listName: "",  
  7.         dialogTitle: "",  
  8.         spanID: "",  
  9.         DialogId: "",  
  10.         standard:"",  
  11.         isValidArea:"",  
  12.         toolpriorityinput:"",  
  13.         Safety:""  
  14.           
  15.     };  
  16.

"onUpdate" function acts as  call back from child component to parent component, which usually transfers the data from child to parent.
 
In the below function, I am storing the selected check box values in state variable named "Safety". 
  1. /*Dialog on update function*/  
  2.   private onUpdate = dlgOutput => {  
  3.     try{

  11.       console.log("Error in onUpdate function : " + error);  
  12.     }  
  13.   }  
To replace <p> tag with semicolon use the below code.
 
Eg
 
Before - <p>Test</p><p>Sample</p>
After - Test;Sample; 
  1. public ReplaceParaWithSemiColon(stringValue):string{
