Is there an easier way to get text of all checked checkboxes?

Let's say i have 50 checkboxes, I only need the text of the checked boxes. We can go through each of them one by one, just wonder whether there is a simpler way to do it. Thanks!

turns out Ctl-V 50 times is not that of a labor. Thanks anyway.

If that 50 is a firm number, study generic and component blocks, to avoid making your blocks look like a box of combs.

Do you need examples?

Sure, please


This is to set the checkboxes, which is not much of a concern for me cause I do it in designer, it's easier to do it there. I was trying to find a simplier waya to get a list of texts for those checked checkboxes

"This is to set the checkboxes" ...

Probably should use this Block to determine the Checked state in a similar way as Anke showed?


Here are some resources to help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:
