I was reading the page at Communication between widgets—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS | ArcGIS  and thinking how it wasn't very complete.

Then I stumbled across the page at Communication between widgets—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) | ArcGIS for Developers  which is very similar but with more content.

It seems there are parallel streams of content at Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS | ArcGIS  and Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) | ArcGIS for Developers

Why not just merge them into a single location? Esri documentation is already quite complicated comprehensive so why make it harder on yourselves and us to keep up-to-date?

Cheers,

Steve
