Any widget moves inadvertently to the left whenever it is placed in the upper right area of the window? http://www.fairfield-city.org/maps/gis

1 comment - your layer list is toggled backward. checked off, unchecked on –  Brad Nesom Apr 29 '11 at 16:43
Toggle ON is for my Groups only, group layers are OFF. The overview and search widgets are where I configured them to be. –  user2846 May 2 '11 at 0:19

I don't have this problem on my flex map.
On further read my first solution didn't seem to relate. But it is obvious that there does seem to be an edge offset perhaps the active area for the widget is a different size screen resolution?

BTW it does the same thing in the lower right. and to a lesser extent on the left edge. It looks like there is a different extent defined for the widget that for the map.

I had the same problem.

I think is a bug in flexviewer. Look at line 299 & 300 in WidgetTemplate.as:

if (widget.x > (systemManager.stage.width - widget.width - 200) ) 
            widget.x = systemManager.stage.width - widget.width - 200;

That "200" make the movement. If you remove this 2 lines or you put "0" instead "200", it will be fix.

Sorry for my bad English.

Thx for the info. I updated to 0. After I built the release though I don't see where WidgetTemplate.as exists anywhere in my existing viewer in order to replace it. –  Derek May 10 '11 at 7:03
