So I'm being tasked with porting a legacy map app from an aging application. I'm going to aim to do it with the WAB. However, due to time constraints I haven't had time to touch the WAB since it came out of it's BETA cocoon. And most of what I did in BETA was for directed, single-use map apps. I really haven't had time to dig in and see what all is there to play with.
I'm wondering if a feature class has a lot of attributes can I replicate the query functionality of the old map app in the new WAB App?
Here is a sample of how they currently build a query... (this is for Police Arrests by the way)
For those of you with more experience does this look doable with the new WAB? Would I need to check out a custom widget?
Any input from those with more experience with the WAB would be great.

as you said your best bet would be creating a custom widget. It is pretty straight forward and the help that ESRI provides is somewhat helpful.
I created a custom widget and I am not a programming pro. So if you want to look at it just to see how things work
Hope this helps!
Yeah. I'm hoping to not have to do that just yet. I have made just one custom widget and it was mostly cannibalizing code that Robert Scheitlin, GISP wrote. I'm hoping to go as much out of the box as I can for this. I'm "supposed" to have time to get into the WAB and play, research the Dojo and Widgets stuff, so that I "CAN" do these types of things... but there is never enough time... ugh!
I thought I remember a Query option that was fairly intense. I was hoping I could put together sample queries that they just plug in their specifics to get the output.
And then export to CSV is a big deal too...
Thanks for the response... I'm gonna cross my fingers that this is not going to be the dev nightmare I fear it will.
