Scripting Checkboxes on Mimics (Not Forms)

I am trying to add radioboxes and checkboxes on mimics but I can only find that functionality in forms. Is there a way to get them on Mimics? 

Thank you

Negative,

 

You have to implement them using the basic graphical items (like lines / rectangles) and animations.

 

I guess something like a Checkbox would just have a rectangle with an outline, and then a cross with animation visibility over the top of it.

I'm pretty sure you could just put the pick action on the rectangle and have it as setting the value to the opposite desired state.

 

For the radio buttons, it's going to be a similar story.  You'd have a circle with an outline, and then a filled circle with animation visibility over the top of it.

 

You'd probably make these as 'symbols', i.e. as a mimic with Parameters, so that you can embed them onto other mimics and have them consistently configured.
