skipLabel question

Could someone help me out a little?  Thank you!
Following code does not remove the label at all, but I can't seem to find the reason why.  (I have tried skipLabelBlank too, same result)

// create a checkbox
$field = $modules->get("InputfieldCheckbox");
$field->attr('id+name','test');
$field->label = '';
$field->skipLabel = Inputfield::skipLabelHeader;  // DOES NOTHING?
$form->add($field);

ps: I'm using PW 3.x

The skipLabel option is about whether or not to render the header of the inputfield.

An example with InputfieldText:

$f = $modules->get('InputfieldText');
$f->name = 'text1';
$f->label = 'label';
$inputfields->add($f);

$f = $modules->get('InputfieldText');
$f->name = 'text2';
$f->label = 'label';
$f->skipLabel = Inputfield::skipLabelHeader;
$inputfields->add($f);

For InputfieldCheckbox, the header is already not rendered by default unless a description is defined for the inputfield. Instead, the label is rendered next to the checkbox itself. So setting skipLabelHeader or skipLabelBlank won't do anything because the header is already skipped.

If you do want a separate header label for InputfieldCheckbox you can use the "checkboxLabel" or "label2" properties (they both do effectively the same thing). When these properties are set the "label" is rendered in the header and the "checkboxLabel" or "label2" is rendered next to the checkbox:

$f = $modules->get('InputfieldCheckbox');
$f->name = 'checkbox1';
$f->label = 'label';
$inputfields->add($f);

$f = $modules->get('InputfieldCheckbox');
$f->name = 'checkbox2';
$f->label = 'label';
$f->checkboxLabel = 'checkboxLabel';
$inputfields->add($f);

If your question is actually "is it possible to have a checkbox without any text next to it" I think the answer is no, not using the API options. You could try a str_replace() in a hook after InputfieldCheckbox::render, or use Javascript to remove the text.

Edit: another alternative for a checkbox without text next to it is to use a space character as the label:

$f = $modules->get('InputfieldCheckbox');
$f->name = 'checkbox1';
$f->label = ' ';
$inputfields->add($f);
