Creating a New Widget Library
In addition to extending custom widgets by editing the widget code, new widget libraries can be written and then included in CloudTest.
A primary reason one might implement a custom widget library would be to share common code between two or more widgets.
Navigate to Central > Dashboards.
Right-click in the Dashboards list and then choose Create a New Widget Library.The Widget
Library Editor appears.
- Enter a name, description (optional), define a folder (optional) for the CloudTest folder for the project, and write or copy and paste code into the editor.Creating a project folder is a good idea since it's often more convenient to open from Central list > Library item than from the Dashboard workflow. Typically, you'll create your custom library and then use the Widget Editor to deploy code in the context of a given widget.
- Enter the widget code using the example code above as a guideline
- Save the new widget library before exiting.
