Open Widget Activity


Opens a widget in an ArcGIS Web AppBuilder application.


A workflow running in an ArcGIS Web AppBuilder application may need to activate other widgets. Use this activity to invoke ArcGIS Web AppBuilder's openWidgetById mechanism and open another widget. For example, to open the Attribute Table widget, use this activity with the widget Id "AttributeTable".
