Widget Properties Example Instance


Property Details
querypart Name of the SharePoint list that contains the data to be displayed for this instance.
site wide alert message This text message displays on the page where the text is set on the snippet.  This value would rarely be used as a site wide alert, since a better approach is to use a control item across all pages that would be set on the ak:instructionset.
disablealert If false, the alert message will not be displayed

If true, the alert message will be displayed

preview Value = false for this widget
dynamic preview Value = true for this widget
title If a value is entered, then the title will appear on the header of the App.
ICON Selects the icon that is displayed to the left of the widget title.
instruction set Path to the IDS list if it exists.  This value will be found on the Control App item.  Example for a site wide alert message highlighted in yellow:  
cache interval Sets the time (in secs) that the data should be saved in the local browser cache of the current user.

0 = do not cache the data for this widget

-1 = use the default caching strategy set in the Digital Workplace configuration

[whole number] = cache for specified time (secs)
