The samples in this repository showcase extending operation views created using the Windows version Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS. This version of the application and this extensibility framework have been moved to Mature Support status. To learn more about the latest web-based version, see Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS.


Dashboard-samples

Using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, you can develop widget, map tools, and feature action extensions for Operations Dashboard running on Windows and in a browser.

  • Buffer map tool - A map tool that creates buffers from a clicked point.
  • Elevation Profile widget - A widget that creates profile graphs by drawing lines interactively on the map.
  • Export to CSV feature action - A feature action that exports the feature results into a CSV table.
  • GeoEnrichment widget - A widget that displays an age pyramid from a clicked point.
  • Line Chart widget - A line chart widget that is powered by data from your map or external data source.

Instructions - How to write a sample

  1. Create a folder for your sample.
  2. In the sample folder, you should have at minimum a JSON manifest file and a HTML file. Use HTML5 for your HTML file.
  3. You can also create a JS file with the business logic for the extension.
  4. Copy the following blueprint into your sample manifest file, update the properties and remove the unnecessary properties. Read the manifest topic to learn more:
{
  "type": <Type of sample: Widget, Map Tool, Feature Action>,
  "name": <A nice name>,
  "description": <A nice description>,
  "useDataFromView": <true|false>,
  "usePortalServices": <true|false>
  "runtime" : {
   "path": <The relative path of the runtime web page (the path from under the sample folder)>,
   "iconPath": <The relative path of the icon representing the sample (the path from under the sample folder)>,
  },
  "configuration": {
   “path": <The relative path of the configuration web page (the path from under the sample folder)>,
   "requiresDataSource": <true|false>,
   "requiresMapWidget": <true|false>,
   "supportFeatureActions": <true|false>
  },
  "credits": "Esri, http://www.esri.com"
}
  1. Copy the following blueprint into your sample html file:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title></title>

  <!-- Add your sample style here -->

</head>

<!-- Add your sample configuration or runtime html here -->
<!-- You can also use Dijit -->

<script>
  var extensionLocation = location.pathname.replace(/\/[^/]+$/, '');
  var dojoConfig = {
    async: true, // Anything is async from now on
    locale: location.search.match(/locale=([\w\-]+)/) ? RegExp.$1 : "en-us", // The locale of the Operations Dashboard
    host application is passed by url query params
    paths: {
      "extension": extensionLocation
    }
  };
</script>
<script src="//js.arcgis.com/3.20"></script>
<script>
  require([
    "dojo/parser",
    "dojo/domReady!"
  ], function(parser){
    parser.parse();
  });
</script>
<!-- Add you additional javascript scripts here-->

</body>
</html>
  1. If your sample requires configuration, create an additional HTML file. Also you can create a JS file for the configuration's business logic. Make sure your manifest file contains the properties for the configuration.
  2. To test your sample, start Operations Dashboard in developer mode, then create a single-display operation view and add the extension. If you create a multi-display operation view, you can only open it in the Windows app, and you won't be able to debug your extension in the web browser.
  3. You can use the extension debugger to debug your sample in the Windows app.
