Shiny + real-time checkboxes


Hello there, I am a relatively new user but I was able to get a basic form working with MySQL. The next step is to have the ability to select/deselect some results based on checkboxes. There are a million examples out there, but I am shooting for something like the way NewEgg lets you choose vendors and other options, e.g.:

Is there an easy way to do this in Shiny or will I have to do a lot of JavaScript/Ajax hand-hacking to make this work?



Here’s a somewhat similar example you could adapt:

You’d have to change the selectInputs to checkboxGroupInput (and updateSelectInput to updateCheckboxGroupInput) and change the UI to move the filter controls to the sidebar, but a lot of the core logic would stay the same I think.


Excellent, thanks for the suggestion.
