Flutter CheckboxListTile basically contains a single row that has a title, subtitle, and a trailing checkbox icon.
Flutter CheckboxListTile Widget
Flutter CheckboxListTile displays a title, subtitle, or description and a checkbox icon horizontally. The suffix checkbox icon is mainly defined through the trailing parameter.
By default, Flutter CheckboxListTile can show two lines of text. The title and the subtitle. As the first line of text is not optional but the second line of text or the subtitle i.e. optional. The texture of the leading and trailing widgets can be modified according to the properties given.
So, are you ready to make use of this widget package in the Flutter application? If so, then let's quickly jump into the usage and the ways a CheckboxListTile can be modified and used to make user-friendly apps. Here I am going to use an open-source UI Library known as GetWidget to build this CheckboxListTile widget in Flutter.
GFCheckboxListtile is a Flutter Checkbox ListTile. In this widget, we can design a title, subtitle, and a trailing checkbox widget. It has customization options which is an easy way to handle it as per the application and its requirement. The GetWidget CheckboxListTile displays the list of items in a card fashion.
How to Start
Now here is the guide about how we should start developing the GFCheckboxListTile Widget with the use of the GetWidget UI Library.
Getting started will guide you on how to start building a beautiful flutter application with the GetWidget UI library. You have to install the package from pub.dev, import the package in your Flutter project.

Keep playing with the pre-built UI components.
GFCheckboxListTile is a Flutter CheckboxListTile that has a list of items wherein the user can check or uncheck only one item in the list at a time. GFCheckboxListTile can also be positioned right or left of the screen according to the need. The below code gives a simple example with an avatar on the left side as shown in the below image.

How CheckboxListTile is different from ListTile?
Both ListTile and CheckboxListTile are having almost similar properties. We mostly use CheckboxListTile in those sections where we are having a list of options to select but in the case of ListTile, it is not mandatory to use the checkbox widget.
Can we change the background color of CheckoxListTile?
Yes, we can change the background color by using the color property.
Can we change the check icon of CheckoxListTile?
Yes, we can change the check icon and instead of this, we can use any other icon widgets also.
