Dear all,

We integrated a search function into a story map based on the "old" side-accordion template: http://speck.conabio.gob.mx/cruzada/COL/2.PoblacionIndigena/index.html

As we plan to update our map to the recently published version of the side-accordion, i.e. the map-series template, we wonder where to integrate the code of our search function. It is part of the core.js in the "old" side-accordion template.

Concretely my question would be, how to integrate a "dijit.form.ComboBox"?

Thank you & best regards,

Flo

Hi,

It should not be too hard to port that enhancement to Map Series. The most simple for you would be to add the code to index.html. We have a full guide on GitHub Esri/map-series-storytelling-template-js · GitHub

You will want to download the user version of the application, edit index.html at this line map-series-storytelling-template-js/index.html at master · Esri/map-series-storytelling-template-js ...

you will need to require the combox that way

require(["dijit/form/ComboBox"], function(ComboBox){

// Place your code here

});

Hi Gregory, we successfully integretated a ComboBox into the interface. However, we aren´t sure how to read/access the ID of each map displayed, since the "new" template uses one web-app ID instead of several web-map IDs?

cheers,

Hey,

Glad to hear! The map ids are printed in the developer console when the map is loaded. You can also call app.data.getWebmaps() and it will return an array with all the webmap ids used in the story.
