Hey guys, I was wondering if there is any documentation available (if it is even possible) about converting a webmap from the javascript api into a widget/webmap on the web app builder. 

As an example I am attempting to create an application where the user can edit features without a popup of any sort appearing. I understand that there is a code sample that does exactly that and i have linked it below. But I am using agol and do not host anything on my own servers, so i need this functionality in the form of a widget.

Linked js example : Edit without editor widget | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 3.23

Hi Ab i get this solution.

This is what you want ?

Firts You need to develope the Widget folder, its look like this, then you need to create your html and your java script code. i am going to attach the code of the widget, you know how to add the widget to the web app builder widget pool?

Thank you very much, I will download and compare the code with my own code and see where I made my mistakes. I assume using my own layer (which is hosted on arcgis online) will not be too difficult.

Yeah just use the Web Map in your web app builder and thewidget get the layers to delete the custom layers just delete this lines.

I hope this help to you.

I just realized that the widget will only populate the layers that you add to it in the .js file. I thought that if this.map is called it retrieves all the information on the map including the layers.

I think I see where my problem is, i defined my functions outside of the startup method whereas you placed everything inside of the startup method. But i tried defining the function as _initEditing and without the underscore (which i believe is what would make into a global function) and I still get the same error. Do you think it is not as simple as that?
