Bug Description

For instance, take the "Connec to <wifi network>" pop-up dialog. When I touch the:
[ ] Show password
checkbox *label*, I'd expect the checkbox to toggle. I shouldn't need to have to exactly touch the checkbox box, which is a small area.

<https://goo.gl/rKtjAI> (currently Canonical-only link): “As with a switch or radio button, when a checkbox has a label, it should be clickable/tappable together with the checkbox itself.”

This could probably be amended in the UITK as well, to be able to mark the label corresponding to a checkbox as one active for it aas well.

almost marked opinion for unity8 as it makes sense to just do it in toolkit, so are you thinking this is something we'd actually do in unity8 ?

No I actually meant that there will be something u8 has to do to enable this for this use case.

That's not the default behaviour for list item, but it can be set in this way by the app developer if he wishes to do so. For example, you might have more actions in the list item, not just the checkbox
