Hi, at the moment my text for the checkbox is greater than the screen width. I'm wondering how do I get the text to wrap/line break when the width is large.

Hi Minh Tran, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
Query: How do I get the text to wrap/line break when the width is large.  
SfCheckBox's text has been wrapped automatically in Android and UWP platforms. For iOS, we have achieved your requirement using SizeThatFits override method in custom renderer (CheckBox_IndeterminateState.iOS/ CheckBoxRenderer) of SfCheckBox control.  Please download the sample in below link  
Code Example [C#]: 
 public override CGSize SizeThatFits(CGSize size)
            var sizeValue = base.SizeThatFits(size);
            var text = Control.TitleLabel.Text;
            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(text))
                NSString nsstring = new NSString(text);
                UIStringAttributes attribs = new UIStringAttributes
                    Font = Control.Font,
                    ParagraphStyle = new NSMutableParagraphStyle()
                        LineBreakMode = UILineBreakMode.CharacterWrap

                CoreGraphics.CGRect textSize = nsstring.GetBoundingRect(new CGSize(width, double.MaxValue), NSStringDrawingOptions.UsesLineFragmentOrigin, attribs, null);
                float strikeHeight = (float)textSize.Height;

                return new CGSize(sizeValue.Width, strikeHeight);

            return sizeValue;
Please let us know, if you have any other queries.
