A checkbutton is a widget that displays a textual string, bitmap or image and a square called an indicator. If text is displayed, it must all be in a single font, but it can occupy multiple lines on the screen (if it contains newlines) and one of the characters may optionally be underlined using the underline option. A checkbutton has all of the behaviour of a simple button, including the following: it can display itself in either of three different ways, according to the state option; it can be made to appear raised, sunken, or flat; and it invokes a Tk command whenever mouse button 1 is clicked over the checkbutton.
In addition, checkbuttons can be selected. If a checkbutton is selected then the indicator is normally drawn with a sunken relief and a tick (check) mark, and a Tk variable associated with the checkbutton is set to the onvalue (normally 1). If the checkbutton is not selected, then the indicator is drawn as an empty box with raised relief, and the associated variable is set to the offvalue (normally 0). The variable name may be modified with options on the command line (-variable option). Configuration options may also be used to modify the way the indicator is displayed (or whether it is displayed at all). By default a checkbutton is configured to select and deselect itself on alternate button clicks.

If the checkbutton's state is disabled then none of the above actions occur: the checkbutton is completely non-responsive.
The behaviour of checkbuttons can be changed by defining new bindings for individual widgets.
