Okay I don't fully understand this but it seems somehow the embedded browser doesn't render checkboxes (or radio buttons for that matter) correctly. When I ram my connector in the simulator with chrome it worked fine. However running the same simulator from within tableau my check boxes stopped displaying. When I added the following to my .css file they started rendering from within tableau. I'd rather not have to custom style my checkboxes - but at least I can move forward. Hope this helps somebody who comes across the same problem
-webkit-appearance: none !important;
-moz-appearance: none !important;

box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.05), inset 0px 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.1);
border: 0px solid #dde1e2;
You are using a Mac I presume? Please let me know if not. The checkbox/radio button rendering bug is a known issue. Under the covers we are using QT 5.4 WebKit as our browser, and it is a bug that exists in that browser.
The good news is we recently found a fix for this problem and that fix will be coming out in a future maintenance release.
But thank you for posting your workaround! I think this will be very helpful to some developers in the meantime.
Thanks for your reply. Yes I am on a Mac - didn't occur to me that could be an issue. Glad you guys are working on a fix. I'll leave my custom .css in for now and will gladly remove it in the future.
