Can I display current scale in web app builder application?

I would like to display the current map scale to the user in a web app builder application.  Is this possible using a widget or does it require additional code?


If it requires additional code has anyone done this successfully and could share some resources/hints?



I should have been more specific in my question.  I'm interested in knowing if the user is at 12,345 or 1,128 rather than giving them the ability to measure using a scalebar.  My goal is to have some way to know when a user is asking why they can't see a layer to be able to tell them how far to go in.  Or if they say that it needs to be visible at a certain scale I can quickly make the change rather than educated guessing.  Is there another way to accomplish this goal?
