Any suggestions or code??

Shaikh,

Following are the functions to add/remove custom link/button into the info window. Include these functions into the search widget's widget.js. and define onClick handler (_onCustomAction).

_addAction: function(){
    var link = domConstruct.create("a",{
                "class": " action my-action", //give it a unique class
                "id": "customAction",
                "innerHTML": "My Action", //text that appears in the popup for the link 
                "href": "javascript: void(0);"
              }, query(".actionList", this.map.infoWindow.domNode)[0]);


     //when the link is clicked register a function that will run 
     on(link, "click", this._onCustomAction);
}

_removeAction: function() {
     //to remove either store "link" var into a global or get it by class using dojo/query
     query(".my-action", this.map.infoWindow.domNode).forEach(function(elem){
          elem.destroy();
     })
}

Call this _addAction method in "_onSearchResults" method inside Search widgets's widget.js.

Hopefully this should do what you want.

Thanks,

Girish

Hi Robert, 

is it possible to call the editor from this button that will used the selected geometry that was returned as a search result?

I would like the user to use the search widget to find the required address, and then add this address and its attributes to a FS.

Adam,

   Custom actions know which feature is selected to show the popup, so yes.

Thanks for your help Robert. I am still trying to get this to work, have not been able to successfully call the method, are there any examples I maybe able to reference? Any examples of using this process to call the attribute editor? 

Thank you in advance

I got this example worked. But I want the link/button to be visible for only one feature  layer map infowindow and not to be visible for any of the other feature layers map info windows.

How to accomplish this?

Thank you!
