I am having an issue with the Measurement-Widget in combination with other widgets with the newest ArcGIS API for JavaScript (3.13). With the sandbox, I was able to create a map which includes HomeButton, LocateButton, Scalebar, OverviewMap and BasemapGallery. All this works together. When I start to add the code of the Measurement-Widget, the other widgets disappear. So I removed some code from the -container and sfs, pacelsLayer, snapManager and layerInfos. With or without it, it doesn't matter. When I comment out this part:

//esriConfig.defaults.io.proxyUrl = "/proxy/";
//esriConfig.defaults.io.alwaysUseProxy = false;
//esriConfig.defaults.geometryService = new GeometryService ("http://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Geometry/GeometryServer");

the other widgets work again, but the Measurement-Widget tools are missing.

I tried also to build the homebutton inside of the following link, but it doesn't work. http://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/sandbox/sandbox.html?sample=widget_measurement

The Search/Geocoder-Widget doesn't work too...but there seems that it have a problem with the BasemapGallery.

    First, I'd suggest you replace the html comments with /* javascript */ commments. Second, move the BorderContainer, ContentPane, and TitlePane references in your require() statement so that they're under the dijit/form/CheckBox reference.

The modules in your require are not matching with the variables in the function.

You need to move the modules
