Nette\Forms\Controls\CheckboxList#getControl() has some strange characters ? or : at the end of its attribute names but I can not find a mention anywhere about what it does – neither in docs nor in the code. Can someone explain it to me, please? Thanks.

E.g. 'checked?' => $this->value

These modifiers are processed in https://github.com/…/Helpers.php#L207
It looks like merging default values of attributes with user-supplied ones.

EDIT: I am sorry, this post was initially written in Czech, b/c I overlooked we are in the English part of the forum.

Such attributes are dynamic, i.e. their value varies for each input in the list. The difference is that ? expects a list of input values for which the attribute is true, while : expects an array of input value => attribute value pairs.

Perhaps the test can explain it better than me :)

Magic ✨ Thank you for your answers – both link to source code which I was unable to find and a reminder that tests exist. :-)
