Point me in the right direction for making this custom widget

Hi, I want to create a 'simple' custom widget for Web AppBuilder (Developer edition 2.2) and not sure on the right path to take in making it happen.


I have run through this little tutorial

Create a custom in-panel widget—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) | ArcGIS for Developers 

Which was good and all but I was wondering if there were something more specific for what I want to do.


I hope this is simple but here is what I am thinking. I have a point layer that contains URLs for spherical photos. I want to be able to open a widget that has a tool (similar to the Google Streetview widget from Robert) that when you click on the point, it pops up a small box (like Google Streetview) that contains the spherical image (using iFrame html, I would think). I hope this makes sense.


Here is a sample link to a spherical image:… 

[I am trying to embed it into this thread using 'iframe' so we will see if it works - well, it worked when I composed the message...]


Is there an example I can look at that makes a custom widget that brings up its own pop up box that can embed an image like this? (and hopefully in terms that a non-programmer, but wanna-be-programmer, can understand)?
