Hi experts,

Is it possible display a 'x' for an html checkbox when we click on instead of 'tick' mark. Can we change this? Maybe using a Javascript code?

Regards,

I think you are better off leaving it a check as is since that will be easier to make your form compatible with multiple devices and browsers.   Otherwise, the way to do what you want is with a sprite like shown here

and

Alternative options with a tick.
