Then translate the above to
The point of all this is the following: If you have a variable (even if
not changing often, or being globally configured) number of objects,
it's a good idea to keep them around in a list.
Even if you need specific parameters for the checkboxes, it would most
probably be better to do it like this
checkbox_args = [
("name", parameter, ...),
("other_name", other_parameter, ...),
for parameters in checkbox_args:
If you know on the other hand that you will have 10 checkboxes which
have all a defined meaning, it might be better to use a meaningful name
for them, like:
self.create_backup = Checkbox(...)
self.perform_authorization = Checkbox(...)
