### The Selectboxes component

Define a group of checkboxes in the form. This is similar to the Radio component, but allows for multiple selections at the same time.

In addition to the properties and methods listed below, this component inherits properties and methods from the superclass Component. For example, any Selectboxes component has a label and defaultValue property even though these are not explicitly listed here.

#### Properties
