Hi Robert,

I was just working on this yesterday and I have set multiple sources in search widget and they work fine, and I get suggestions when each one is selected, depending on the field I specified in the code.

I want to know is there a way to change the title for "ESRI World Geocoder" to something else which is easier for everyone to understand, like  " Search" or anything else.

Thanks.

Saloni,

  Sure the "ESRI World Geocoder" is just a API default string for the search widget. So just add the following require and var and then this one line of code.

Require: "dojo/i18n!esri/nls/jsapi",

Var: esriBundle

esriBundle.widgets.Search.main.esriLocatorName = "something new";

Is there a way to remove that completely?

Richard,

   If you are asking about not having the "ESRI World Geocoder" as a source option than you just need to overwrite the Search Widgets sources property instead of adding to the array.
