ui.forminput

A wrapper that transforms a widget into a form input.

The control allows placing other control or a widget into an area with a label and making it look and behave as a default form input. Check FormInput documentation for a more detailed description.

Constructor

// a widget to be transformed into a form input
var list1 = { 
    view:"dbllist", 
    data:[
        {id:"1", value:"Guest"},
        {id:"2", value:"Member"},
        {id:"3", value:"Moderator"}
    ]
};
 
// form input initialization
var forminput = webix.ui({
    view:"forminput", 
    name:"access", 
    body:list1, 
    labelWidth: 140,
    labelAlign:"right",
