I'm looking at the geoprocessing service widget and I'm trying to figure out if I can do a graphic selection of features so that the process only runs on those features (similar to what happens in ArcMap). Is that possible?
Have you looked at the Query widget or the eSearch?
Those Robert mentioned and more can be found Web AppBuilder Developer Edition - Resource List (updated 5/13/2018)
That sentence doesn't make sense...
I meant that the widgets Robert mentioned, and a lot of other custom widgets are included on the resource list. Thought maybe you were new to Web App Builder dev edition. My apologies if my assumption was wrong.
No worries. We'll say I'm intermediate. It was trying to parse that sentence that was giving me a headache (who's Robert and what has he mentioned? ).
Ahh. You need to know Robert Scheitlin, GISP 's name if you do anything with using web app builder dev edition (sorry I was so vague). He was the one that made the first comment to you above.....and also one of the main developers of the custom apps. He answers many, many questions in the geonet community re: JS and Web app builder (WAB), and was the Flex custom app guru too.
That could work. I'll have to test it.
I can't use eSearch because we are using AGOL rather than hosting Portal on our servers. The Query widget runs into 2 problems:
However the geoprocessing service I'm looking at only needs the extent of all the features that have been selected. So I think that if I use the Draw tool, adding its output as an operational layer and use that as the input to the service, that will get me around the issue (there's a big "I think" in there).
I agree this would be the way to go.
