It says "This widget cannot be grouped with other widgets." when trying to group the Search widget and Situational Awareness widgets. I am using Launchpad. The icon in the Anchorbarcontroller is of basically simply there to open them i.e. instantiate them. So I would think this should be possible at least conceptually? I am fine with how they open and work otherwise. I just want to hide their icons because we have 'too many' buttons on the bottoms, so I want to hide the Search and Situation Awareness away in an Advance tools group panel. (the house icon "Advanced Tools and Property Analysis" - on www.sagis.org/map/ )
Is there a workaround? Or if not, may I suggest this be a Feature Enhancement for a future WebApp Builder update?
Hi Kevin, unfortunately, the answer is no as these two are off-panel widgets. if you open their manifest.json, the inPanel property is set to false. Only inPanel widgets can be grouped. Hope this helps. Jianxia
Hi Jianxia Song ah yes.. I figured so... Yes indeed I had read the docs https://developers.arcgis.com/web-appbuilder/guide/in-panel-and-off-panel-widget.htm
May I please recommend this as a feature enhancement? After all, while the widgets themselves are different in terms of UI rendering (being off-panel, vs in a panel for launchpad) ... I just want to hide their launching button, the icon. I would think simply the ability to put the icon that launches them (instantiate) should not matter whether they are off-panel or in-panel? Once launched, the code and behavior is different. And they are completely fine in how they work and look. It is simply the button that launches them that I want to hide, and I suspect many other people would also like this ability to hide any widget launching button, no matter whether on or off panel. Thank you!
