How to make checkbox visible when hover or select the element?

  • Last Updated : 31 Jan, 2020

The problem here is how to make a checkbox visible only when:

  1. It is hovered over
  2. Selected

The checkbox shouldn’t be visible when not selected. It only becomes visible when hovered over again.
The solution to the problem is simple. We can use the opacity property of the checkbox element and manipulate that. Just change the opacity value of the checkbox to 1 when the checkbox element is hovered over or when it is selected, using CSS. The default value of opacity should be 0.

            border:2px solid black;
        .cardcheckbox {
        opacity: 0;
        .cardcheckbox:checked {
            opacity: 1;
    <div id="box">
            <input type="checkbox"
