Info Summary widget

The Info Summary widget allows you to provide a count of features contained in the current map extent for each layer specified. Each layer in the widget panel can be expanded to show a list of features in the current extent, optionally grouped by a specified field. Point layers in the widget can be configured to display as clusters.

Configure the Info Summary widget

The Info Summary widget can be set to open automatically when the app starts. To enable this feature, click the dot on the widget, which turns it dark green.

  1. Hover over the widget and click the edit button Edit.

    The configuration window for the widget appears.

  2. Optionally click the Change widget button and replace it with your own image.

    A file explorer window appears, allowing you to select a local image file to use as the widget icon.

  3. Click Add Layer.
    Each added layer specifies a feature layer in the map to be counted and displayed by the widget. The following layer types are supported with the Info Summary widget:
    • Feature service
    • Feature collection
    • Simple map service
    • Comma-separated value (CSV) file (.csv)
    • Keyhole Markup Language (KML) file (.kml, .kmz)
    • GeoRSS web feed (URL)
  4. Optionally add a label for each layer.
  5. Click the edit button Edit under the Display Options header to update the symbology options and panel display options.
    • Use the Symbol tab to change the map symbology, enable clustering for point layers, or update the panel symbology (the symbols displayed in the widget panel).
    • Use the Panel tab to manage how the list of feature information displays in the widget panel. Select a field and label under Layer Options to display a list of features using the selected attribute.
    • Optionally check the Group Features check box under Group Options to group features in the list by a specified field or by the renderer used in the map.
  6. Optionally select Refresh for Feature Collection layer types to continually update the data using the specified interval. If the Refresh option is enabled, a refresh interval is required.
  7. Under Actions, change the order of layers or delete a layer.
  8. Optionally select Display Feature Counts to display a count of features for each layer in the widget panel.

    The count will display the number of features for the selected layer.

    A file explorer window appears, allowing you to select a local image file.

  10. Specify text in the Main Panel Text text box to display below the logo image, for example, Last Updated.
  11. Optionally select Expand List on Startup. This will automatically expand the first row in the panel when the widget is opened.
  12. Optionally select Show All Features to show the complete list and count of features for the layer regardless of the current map extent.
  13. Optionally select Hide Panel to enable the app to start without a visible widget panel.
