How can I Customized the geo processing widget?

How can i show a working widget on the my development section under the SimpleWidget folder?

Side Note: I have created a GP Service which is currently consumed by Geo processing widget that is out of the box, but i need to modify the structure of how the parameters(fields) show up in the widget. Also in need to set a particular size on the widget when the user clicks to open it.

Do you mean you want to set values for your parameters when you open the widget? If so then I used code like this in the onOpen function of mine.

var DT0 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_0");
var DT1 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_1");
var DT2 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_2");
var DT3 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_3");
var DT5 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_5");
var DT6= document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_6");
var DT7 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_7");
var DT8 = document.getElementById("dijit_form_TextBox_8");

DT0.value = this.map.extent.xmin
DT1.value = this.map.extent.ymin;
DT2.value = this.map.extent.xmax;
DT3.value = this.map.extent.ymax;
if (DT5){
DT5.value = this.map.extent.xmin;
if (DT6){
DT6.value = this.map.extent.ymin;
if (DT7){
DT7.value = this.map.extent.xmax;
if (DT8){
DT8.value = this.map.extent.ymax;

You can change how the fields order/display in the widget edit mode. If you want to change the size of widget and it is opening in a panel you can use something along these lines.

var panel = this.getPanel();
//panel.position.width = 400;
panel.position.height= 600;

Jamal, Thanks for the reply.

But I was wondering how to make those changes, since the out of the box code you see on the widgets seems to be like spaghetti code and hard to follow. But I managed to make the changes on the sizes of the text boxes and stuff.
