checkboxes.checkChildren Boolean(default: false)

Indicates whether checkboxes of child items should get checked when the checkbox of a parent item is checked. This also enables tri-state checkboxes with an indeterminate state.

Note: when filter is enabled 'checkboxes.checkChildren' property is reset to 'false' because enabling both at the same time could lead to ambiguous scenarios. Currently this scenario not supported by the widget.

Example - enable tri-state checkboxes and propagate checked state to children

<input id="dropdowntree" />

<script>
    $("#dropdowntree").kendoDropDownTree({
        dataSource: [
            {
                text: "foo", items: [
                    { text: "bar" },
                    { text: "bar1" }
                ]
            }
        ],
        checkboxes: {
            checkChildren: true
        }
    });
</script>
