The feature details widget displays detailed information about a feature or row, including a title, description, field information, and one or more media elements. The content for the feature details can be derived from a combination of static text and field values, as well as from any information that has already been configured in the data source, such as the pop-up properties that were set on the map.
The feature details widget displays information about one feature at a time. The data source for the widget can originate from a selection, such as the currently selected feature on the map or in a list widget. If there are multiple selected features or input features, you can page through the display in the feature details widget using an arrow.
In an emergency management scenario, you could use a feature details widget to display detailed information about incident reports that require police, fire, or medical response. In this operation view, a feature details widget displays the report's description, address, report time, and status. The values displayed are static text (such as Description) and the feature's attribute values.
The amount of configuration you need to perform on a feature details widget depends on the information provided by the data source. If the data source has pop-up information in it already, the pop-up content automatically populates in the feature details description. Any changes to the underlying data source pop-up information is reflected in the details widget. You can also override what is defined by the data source, although your changes are now stored only in the operation view and will not be updated if the underlying data source content has updates. You can always reset any overrides you made in the widget and restore the pop-up information of the data source.
Feature actions add display and navigation functions to individual features in the widget. If the widget's data source is a layer in a map, you can zoom the map to the feature, flash it on the map, select it on the map, or have the map follow the feature as it moves automatically.
