Hi,

I want to supply some basic layer information under the LayerList Description instead to the default redirect to the REST endpoint.

Previously when using Flex I would edit the eLayerList config <usenewesridescription>false</usenewesridescription>

This would then provide the layer description included with the published layer.

Is this function possible in WAB or is there another method to providing  background info for your layers?

Thanks

Eoghan,

  There is nothing in place for this currently but a simple replacement of the [instal dir]\server\apps\[app #]\widgets\LayerList\PopupMenuInfo.js with the on attached here will give you the same result you had in Flex minus the ability to configure if the rest endpoint is used or the desc info. This file will show the description and copyright in a message dialog instead of the rest endpoint for that layer.

Robert,

Thanks, that is exactly what I was trying to achieve. I have the layer info window in operation but the values are being returned "undefined".

I have descriptions and copyright text in place, for example:

Layer: Natural Heritage Areas (ID: 6)

Is there an additional step required?

Many thanks again for your assistance.

Eoghan,

   Hmm.. Let me do more testing. Is all your layers coming from the web map or are you also using the local layer widget?

Yes they are, all coming from this webmap:

I haven't used the local layer widget yet. .

Any other info that can assist let me know.

Thanks,

Hi Robert,

Do you know if this will work for an implementation using the LocalLayer widget?

Thank you,
