Web AppBuilder - The custom widgets list (9/19/2017)


The Resource list (this blog) will continue to be the main location for announcements, including any new widgets and updates, etc., as well as having direct links to the other topics.


NOTE: originally posted Feb 20, 2015. Update your bookmark if created before March 2016.

This is a living document originally intended to to list all the custom widgets, code tweaks, and questions/discussions. By March 2017 the list was getting to long, so it is now divided into more specific blogs.

      Latest Updates: (note: I try to list "What's New" here, so you know whether it is worth checking for changes.)

      CMV is built on top of the Esri JavaScript API so you can use your ArcGIS Server REST resources directly without using webmaps or portal. Services at ArcGIS Online and many other external services can be used as well.

      CMV includes numerous widgets available including a very robust layerControl (TOC) widget. If you prefer to use the WAB LayerList widget, you could do that too. With the upcoming version of CMV, you can use widgets created for the WebApp Builder without changing any code - either those that are included with WAB or those that developers have put together. I have created a github repo with a number of examples using WAB widgets here

      The documentation has been updated to reflect the changes. In the blog, there are links to the ideas. On each idea, you will find a response that includes a link in the documentation that refers to the new functionality.
