    Description

      Here is a simple group in a form where second element (text input) is hidden unless the first element (checkbox) is checked:

              $group = [
                  $mform->createElement('advcheckbox', 'commnewsnewemail', 'Email', ''),
                  $mform->createElement('text', 'commnewsemail', get_string('email'))
              ];
              $mform->addElement('group', 'commnewsgroup', 'Receive communication email', $group, '', false);
              $mform->hideIf('commnewsemail', 'commnewsnewemail', 'notchecked');
              $mform->setType('commnewsemail', PARAM_EMAIL);
      

      This works perfectly in Boost but in Clean the whole group is hidden.
      Copy attached file test60205.php to your wwwroot and open in the browser to test
