Webix 2.2: New Widgets Features and UI Improvements
January 23, 2015
We are happy to inform you about the update of Webix UI library. The new version 2.2 introduces plenty of new handy features and lots of other significant improvements.
New Buttons in Calendar
Version 2.2 has brought new optional “Clear” and “Today” buttons to the Calendar widget.
The button “Today” makes it possible to view the current calendar date. The “Clear” control is intended for removing the date selection.
These buttons will be visible by default. If you need to hide these controls, you can easily do it with one codeline.
Since Webix 2.2, it is possible to bind data for Tree and TreeTable.
For instance, when you have either a Tree or a TreeTable widget on the page, you can bind any data component to one of them. Thus, any modifications in Tree or TreeTable will trigger changes in the bound widget.
For example, when you select an item in a Tree widget, this item will be the datasource for DataTable.
File Types in Uploader
Webix 2.2 allows choosing certain types of files for uploading. It will be useful for such cases when you need to find many files of one type in order to upload all of them at once.
Other UI Improvements
In addition to all these important changes, we’ve also made some small improvements.
Here are some of them:
- Optional hover for rows in DataTable
- Horizontal and vertical auto-scrolls during drag-and-drop operations for data components
- Improved scrolling on touch devices
- removeHotKey accepts human readable key names
- and much more
This new version of the library includes a number of significant features that are useful for building fully functional Webix web apps.
