accumulating attribute group

a set of items or properties that are related and whose effect is cumulative, as with a group of checkboxes. Multiple items can be simultaneously selected, as in a font style menu, where a given letter can be made both Bold and Italic. This is in contrast to an mutually exclusive attribute group (such as a group of radio buttons), where only one item can be chosen at a time.
