Setting A Default For A Redwood CheckboxField

RedwoodJS supplies many types of fields for forms, including a CheckboxField for emitting a..well...checkbox field.

I recently added a CheckboxField to a form for my training journal, and had some trouble setting a default value on it.

Turns out I had the prop name incorrect. I expected it to be defaultValue like other form components, but the correct prop is defaultChecked:

    errorClassName="rw-input rw-input-error"

I tracked this down by looking for the original implementation of that component, and finding a test that demonstrated the proper way to set a default value.

I couldn't find this in the docs anywhere, so maybe this will help you one day when searching for "redwoodjs checkboxfield default".
