Question about custom widget in version 4.x

I am trying to create a custom widget and I use Esri's widget as a part of the widget.

So I instantiated Esri's widget and set JSX.Element in container property.

However the customized widget does not show the Esri's widget in the element.

Is it possible to add a widget in customized widget?

Does anyone know any information about it?

Below is a part of my source code.

element: JSX.Element;

render() {

private _onViewReady() {
      const search = new Search({
            view: this.view,
            container: this.element as HTMLElement

I do not deeply understand TypeScript and widget development, so I could miss something...

Any comment is really helpful!

I've been creating my first custom widgets and have found these tutorials helpful. You need to take some time to understand these to have a basic understanding of the development process and concepts.
