I am creating a rather extravagant widget where a user can input a lat long and based on feature class can determine closest feature, then extrapolate the route to take. I have everything but the measurement feature. I figured based on everything ESRI has created ... I tried using the Measurement widget but it seems everything is all tied up were you cannot modify anything - like change mouse input for start and stop to typed input (I cannot see how to modify) and the measurement info is tied into the data-dojo-attach-point (widget.html) which you cannot modify. The Distance widget is no better.
Anyone have any idea of another widget or how to modify the measurement widget accordingly?
