Will the index.html swf need to be re-compiled in order to embed the flexviewer app in between a html header and footer wrapper? Or it this perhaps handled in the HeaderControllerWidget.mxml?

  • Which version of ArcGIS Flex API are you using?

I just modify the default.htm to add my content to the first map page


To answer your two questions:

No, it doesn't have to be re-compiled.

No, it's not handled in HeaderController.

Editing the HTML file is a good idea (like Brad mentioned in his answer). We showed an example of that at the Esri Developer Summit a few months ago. Just take care to edit both default.htm and index.html (or know which one your web server defaults to).

  • thanks Bjorn, that's where I got the idea from. Great trick!
