I changed the name of the widget from "Layer list" to "Select imagery to compare", but now the title is cropped "Select imagery to co..."

How do I make boundaries of the name field wider or change the font to a smaller one?

Thanks

Diana,

Since you have the LayerList widget in the Foldable Theme and in the HeaderController Widgets widget pool,

open your apps config.json and make a change like this (line 9 add the comma and add line 10 with your desired width):

"widgetPool": {
    "panel": {
      "uri": "themes/FoldableTheme/panels/FoldablePanel/Panel",
      "position": {
        "top": 5,
        "right": 5,
        "bottom": 5,
        "zIndex": 5,
        "relativeTo": "map",
        "width": 480
      }
    },

Diana,

  You can open the main config.json of your app and add a width property to that specific widget so that the label shows in full.

Robert, Thank you! I did not know that I need to look got the widget pool. Do you know any online trainings where I can learn how to do widgets customization? Thank you again!

These are probably still last year's videos, but free and might be worth a watch.  Some Dev Summit 2016 might be released soon too.
