Mathias,

  OK, I found the issue. in the main config.json you have:

    {

      "uri": "widgets/MyLocation/Widget",

      "position": {

        "left": 7,

        "top": 110,

        "relativeTo": "map"

      },

      "version": "1.4",

      "id": "widgets_MyLocation_Widget_12",

      "name": "MyLocation",

      "label": "Min plats",

      "config": {

        "locateButton": {

          "geolocationOptions": {

            "timeout": 300

          },

          "highlightLocation": true,

          "useTracking": true

        }

      }

    },

and it needs to be:

   {

      "uri": "widgets/MyLocation/Widget",

      "position": {

        "left": 7,

        "top": 110,

        "relativeTo": "map"

      },

      "version": "1.4",

      "id": "widgets_MyLocation_Widget_21",

      "name": "MyLocation",

      "label": "My Location"

    },

The config property is only expecting a path to the json not an actual json object. If the config property is not included then the widget will use the default config.json in the widgets folder.

Mathias,

Sure just add the "scale" property to your config object:

{

  "locateButton": {

    "geolocationOptions": {

      "timeout": 150

    },

    "highlightLocation": true,

    "useTracking": true,

    "scale": 1200

  }

}

Mathias,

   It is the map scale that is used when zooming to found location.

LocateButton | API Reference | ArcGIS API for JavaScript | scale

hmmm then change the scale number should give effect in my widget but it does not.

Have copy > Paste your code and still ge a very zoomed in version om my position.
(as close as the basemap let i be approx: 1 meter in in evry direction from my point)

Mathias,

  I tested on one of my live preview site and it woks fine. Try this site an activate the my location button

Preview Site

Here is the json used:

{

  "locateButton": {

    "geolocationOptions": {

      "timeout": 15000

    },

    "highlightLocation": true,

    "scale": 12000,

    "useTracking": true

  }

}

Are you sure you are changing the right file?

[mydeployed app]\configs\MyLocation\config_My Location.json

Matias,

  The config.json looks fine als long as you do not have a [mydeployed app]\configs\MyLocation\config_My Location.json which will take precedence over that file.
