Can you create a static legend in Web AppBuilder Developer? I have several layers with same symbols and break points and I would like to have a bar at the bottom of the application that has the symbol and value breaks.
For your needs you would probably be best to add a image to the apps index.html with absolute positioning. Otherwise you would have to create a widget for this or add the image to the about widget.
I am looking to add a branding logo to the map window in the same way a static legend might work. When the view adapts to smartphone/tablet view would the static image not cause interference?
Yes it definitely could.
I was thinking of trying to develop an off panel widget to simply host a png and automatically open. I've yet to figure out how but does that approach sound reasonable?
Definitely a reasonable approach. Create a custom in-panel widget—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) | ArcGIS for Developer...
Is it possible to show the legend in the map instead of inserting it in app builder, or can I configure the app to show multiple widgets at the same time? I'm fairly new to app builder and am trying to reconfigure a web app that was preconfigured with an ArcGIS Solution that I have launched (Election Data Management). I want the legend to be visible to the user without having to navigate away from the Near Me widget which is one of the major focuses of the app.
