I am using Hyperref and Form to create a CheckBox, but I don't want any text near it. It should be without any labels, but I can't leave the parentheses empty, like so:

\CheckBox[checked=true]{}

I need a simple lonely box to check. I've already tried writing \null within the curly brackets but that didn't work and now I can't think of any other ways to do this.


Edit:
As an example: I want to create this table, where the 3rd column (with the square brackets) is where the checkbox should be.

The user should be able to check either one of them.

enter image description here

Code:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{|l|l|c|}
\hline
\multicolumn{3}{|c|}{Q1) What is the meaning of Life?}\\
\hline \hline
a)& 42& \CheckBox[bordercolor=,checked=false]{}\\
\hline
b)& Make ur own& \CheckBox[bordercolor=,checked=false]{}\\
\hline
\end{tabular}

\end{document}

What I have noticed is that if leave the curly brackets in \CheckBox[...]{} empty, the program runs without error, but the resulting document doesn't show any interactive checkboxes.

    yes there is. But please provide a small but complete example. That makes it much easier to test a solution. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 20 at 10:09
  • I don't have the [working] code, but I've shared what I want exactly through a picture. – ray_lv Feb 20 at 11:04

    you should not provide working code, but something that can be used as skeleton. I don't want to have to type all the \documentclass etc myself. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 20 at 11:13
  • I can not confirm the claim "but I can't leave the parentheses empty". You might however, want to add a name, as for example in \CheckBox[name=ch1, checked=true]{}. – leandriis Feb 21 at 8:24
  • @leandriis 's suggestion worked for me! Thank you. Also, should/may I answer the question using your solution? – ray_lv Mar 1 at 9:16

Adding a unique name to each \CheckBox resuts in the following output:

enter image description here

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{|l|l|c|}
\hline
\multicolumn{3}{|c|}{Q1) What is the meaning of Life?}\\
\hline \hline
a)& 42& \CheckBox[bordercolor=,checked=false, name=a]{}\\
\hline
b)& Make ur own& \CheckBox[bordercolor=,checked=false, name=b]{}\\
\hline
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
