ui.multiview

A container control that keeps a set of views and displays one view at a time.

The component allows you to divide the page content into multiple groups and display a specific view based on some criteria. Often used in combination with a clickable control to implement tabbar. Check multiview documentation for more detailed description.

Constructor

webix.ui({  
  rows:[
    {
      view:"segmented", id:'tabbar', value: 'View1', multiview:true, options: [
        { value: 'Form',  id: 'View1'},
        { value: 'Info',  id: 'View2'}
      ]
    },    
    {   id:"mymultiview",
        cells:[
            {id:"View1",template:"Form Content"},                       
            {id:"View2", template:"<i>Info about the Form</i>"}
        ]
     }
   ]
});
