In WAB apps created in previous versions of WAB Developer edition that were imported into WAB Dev 1.2, the hints for query widget entries are impossible to read because the type color is the same shade of gray as the widget background:

Is there a way to change either the widget background or the type color of the hints?  Note that the image shows the query widget nested inside a compound widget that also includes the custom ID widget.

When the query widget is a standalone widget (not nested with another widget), the widget background is white so that the gray type color of the hints is readable.

Barnaby,

  The simple fix is to go into the [install-dir]\server\apps\[app#]\widgets\Query\css\style.css

  And add line 8 to this block:

.jimu-widget-query {
    position: relative;
    width: 99%;
    height: 100%;
    min-width: 222px;
    min-height: 237px;
    overflow-x: hidden;
    background-color: white;
}

Then to make it even better you can add this block:

.jimu-single-filter-parameter .hint {
    font-style: italic;
    font-size: 12px;
    color: #939598;
    margin-top: 5px;
}

Robert, what the heck would I do without you?  You have come to the rescue for about the 900th time.  You are the King.

Many thanks, as usual,

Barnaby

Barnaby,

   You are welcome. There seems to many little issue with stacked widgets. I think there should be from padding on the left and right of the widgets as well. All these are tings you should report to tech support when you have time.

Hopefully ESRI tech support very carefully reads these forums and automatically files away everything into a TODO list.  Yeah, right.

It appears they only read this forum in the middle of the night from a different continent.

Overall, they seem to be doing a fine job.  I wish/hope that you would have a direct hotline to them*, avoiding red tape, to communicate WAB issues/ideas to them.

Even in WAB Dev 2.5, the font color issue for the query filter hints has not been fixed!
