Hello,It would be nice to have a filtering features functionality on Web AppBuilder, either from the layer table or a widget. Thank you,Emily
I realize this is an old post, but just to close the loop on this item, we added a Filter Widget and Group Filter Widget to Web AppBuilder in the June 2016. Please see the blog,
What’s New in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (June 2016) | ArcGIS Blog
Hope this helps,
This is great! Thank you!! =)
Derek Law I love the new widgets in WAB 2.1 thank you excellent work as always Esri Team!
For layers with domains Filter works perfect, with a dropdown menu for users to select values from an attribute.
However, for layers without domains (most of ours)... they have to know the values and how they are formatted. This will be a stopping point for users. However, the solution would be to let the developer instruct the Filter widget to populate the menu with all values, or with a representative sample of values, or maybe the first 10 values, or first 'x' amount of values. So the user knows the "format" of the data and values, to input into the Contains entry, you know?
Like this: Query Builder - Populate representative values (click Tools in upper right, then Query Builder)
For example, I have a layer of shoreline types. The user will need to know to type "Sandy Bluff" or "Marsh Scarp" etc. AIWW Character - Server/AIWW
For a the site I'm updating - Georgia Coastal Hazards Portal 1.0
However, the real end users, the public, will not know these terms. Or how to format them.
With the new WAB 2.1 it's a slamdunk with all the new widgets, this is the only item I have to work on somehow.
