We have some great news for you! Webix was updated to the version 2.4 which includes such great enhancements as a new Portlet widget, MultiCombo and Range Slider form controls, naming only the smallest part of all the changes.
Therefore, you shouldn’t write lines of code to change the arrangement of your web page. All that you need is to grab a portlet by the handler with an inserted widget and put it at the place of future drop which is highlighted by a specific color. Want to check its performance? View this demo.
In addition to this, you may replace the default handler with the widget’s header by typing only several code lines. If you want to adjust the moving modes of portlet, you can find useful information about it in its documentation.
Have you ever wanted to select multiple list items from a combobox at once? Now you can have this cool feature in case you update you library version to the latest one. Thus, you’ll get a Combo that will allow choosing the necessary items by means of checkboxes. It will considerably simplify your users’ interaction with a final app.
Validation Messages in Form

For this purpose Webix Form now has the ‘validation messages’ functionality that allows informing users when they make a mistake while filling in a form.
