The following types of widgets are included into the widget overview of the App Settings:

  • App Store widgets that are Web Modeler approved, which are either, widgets that have been added by default when you created your app, or widgets you can download from the App Store to your project directly from the Web Modeler (for more information on widgets, see Widgets in the Web Modeler)
  • Local widgets – widgets created by users in the Desktop Modeler (you can create local widgets yourself via the Desktop Modeler, for more information, see Custom Widget Development)

In the App Settings the following columns are displayed:
