Enable or disable checkboxes

Hi All:

I have a list of checkboxes that are dynamically created in a list:

new sap.m.VBox({

items: {


template: new sap.m.CheckBox({

//enabled: ifEditMode,


selected: {

parts: [{path: "SELECTED"}],

formatter: function(SELECTED){return SELECTED == 'X';}


text : "{DESCRIPTION}",




I like to disable all the checkboxes until a user clicks the edit button and then the checkboxes should become enabled. I tried a few things but no luck.

Could anyone help or advise please?

Thanks so much in advance.

    You could use the enabled option and bind it to your model. For example:

    var oCB = new sap.ui.commons.CheckBox({

    text : 'I want to receive the newsletter',

    tooltip : 'Newsletter checkbox',

    checked : true,

    change : function() {if(oCB.getChecked()){alert('YES')}else{alert('NO')};},

    enabled : {model>/checkboxStatus}


    Kind regards,
