Without touching the FlexBuilder app (I'm still going through the tutorials for Flex) is there a way to customize the pop-up that appears for the Locate Widget?

I am assuming that I could go into the pop-ups folder and create a popup_Locate config file of some sort? Is this correct? Or is there a better way to customize the popups that appear when selecting from the list that populates from a Locate Widget search?


You can't do this using pop-ups folder. You may be able to go to the widgets folder > locate widget xml. and make some changes there. If you can't do that you will need to modify the code using Flashbuilder.

This answer to Modifying the Score text in the Locate Widget of Flexviewer 2.4 might help.

  • I would like to allow users to use the 'Locate' widget to search for their address. Then when the 'Locate' graphic displays over their address I want that graphic to trigger a popup as if the user clicked at that location. – randomblink Jan 28 '14 at 17:25
  • Basically, I have a 'City Council District' map. I want users to enter their address and have the Council District Layer Popup trigger with the results of their layer. – randomblink Jan 28 '14 at 17:25
  • You would need to modify the source code for the Locate Widget using Flashbuilder to fire an event to query your City Layer and produce a result, not an easy task if you're new to Flex. You could cheat and use the this [post][1] to modify the text (in Flashbuilder) to inform the user to click on the City Layer or map. And configure the pop-up. Good luck. These are the limitations of the flexviewer or app builder. [1]: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/17117/… – pdog Jan 29 '14 at 5:23
  • Yeah, I used to do Flex dev but in a very restricted environment, so I'm going through the Flex in a Week training to get back up to speed. I'll be looking back at this once I get up to speed. – randomblink Jan 29 '14 at 17:12
