So far all my widget's development has been done on non configurable widgets, the setting file structure is inexistent. I am using Web AppBuilder 2.6. I have not been able to find an example on how to test the setting portion of a widget. Is it something that I need to include in the config.json file in order to access the setting portion of my widget? For example, how would I setup the config.json file if I want to access the setting portion of the Filter widget so that I could test it on the development environment?

Michel,

 

  Have you seen this page?

It covers what you are attempting to do.

Good afternoon Robert,

I have definitely seen it, for example if I want to test the out of the box Filter widget setting what is it that I have to do? "http://your host/webappbuilder/?id=stemapp" is there a way to populate this to go directly to Filter?

Robert,

If I understand correctly, the only way for me to test the configurable portion of my application is to go to "http://your host/webappbuilder/?id=stemapp" select the widget I am working on and test it there, am I right?
