Back in the glory days of the Flex viewer it was possible to load a URL parameter for separate configs from a URL, eg:

index.html?config=rivers.xml

index.html?config=roads.xml

etc

Is it possible to load separate config.json files through a URL parameter as a similar approach for WAB Developer Edition? Or can this be embedded in the basic index.html as a similar method?

I have about 10 applications where the config is largely the same but some widget configs are not identical. So this approach would allow me to use a simple parameter to link to different configs and ultimately different widget settings.

Thanks a lot,

Brendan

Brendan,

   Absolutely you can it is not documented very well but they show this ability in the WAB guide.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for that - indeed I searched long and hard for this! It surely is buried.

Much appreciated,

Brendan
