Experience Builder Layer List vs Web App Builder Layer List

Hi all, I'm fairly new to Experience Builder.  Is there any way of getting the layer list widget to look and act the same as it does in Web App Builder? In WAB I can have a check box against each layer, and an integrated legend, but I can't find a way of doing this in EB.

Thank you in advance for any guidance!

As far as I can tell, the only way to get that to work the same way is to add the embedded Layers tool to the map frame itself.


Outside of the web map object, you seem to be restricted to either using the Map Layers or Legend widget, but not a hybrid of the two. It might be worth posting this as an idea, though!

That said, using a Section widget, you could put your legend and layer list together into a single object and replicate this concept yourself.

Thanks @jcarlson , that's a great suggestion - but what I really like about the WebApp Builder layer list is that the legend can be expanded beneath the layer each time (i.e. not from the separate legend tab).  I can't see any way of getting to this in EB - it sounds like it might not be possible?



Many thanks,

Or in a sidebar or panel layout widget, place the layer list and legend vertically and as you click layers on and off the legend symbols appear.  I would then adjust the the height and width settings (stretch, auto, etc) on both data widgets to I like @jcarlson 's idea too. . .

Thanks @DavidColey , I like that suggestion too!  I'd like it even better if there was the functionality to make the legend show up in the layer list, like it does in Web App Builder, but that's a great interim solution!
