can pt-table-checksum support row-based replication

in manual , row-based replication is LIMITATIONS.

that means pt-table-checksum only support statement-based replication ?

if i set binlog_format as ROW or MIXED ,the pt-table-checksum will not working ?


No replication format is not the limitation.
pt-table-checksum runs equally well regardless of the replication format. pt-table-checksum queries replicates as statement based replication which means if replication format is set as row-based than pt-table-checksum tool will set session binlog format as statement based for pt-table-checksum queries only.
