Custom Widgets

This space shows you how to create your own custom widgets for the Visual Designer in NodeRun.

Widget Sets

Widgets are organized in sets. In your workspace, you can easily add, remove, or modify the sets that you need for a specific task or project. This is done by using the options located on the Widget Sets toolbar.

Creating New Widgets

New widgets can be created visually by setting properties on an existing base widget and optionally adding your own CSS and JavaScript code. To link to your custom code, use the "external css" and "external javascript" screen level properties.

In the Visual Designer, configure any look-and-feel and behavior properties for a base widget. This can include adding your own custom CSS classes. Then, right-click the widget and select Add to Set.

To see a complete list of base widgets, switch to the All Widgets tab.

Renaming Widgets

Once a widget has been added to a set, you can give it a name by right-click the widget in the set and selecting Rename.

Changing the Icon

To change a custom widget icon, right-click the widget and select Change icon. You can upload custom icons into the public directory of your workspace.

Reordering Widgets

To rearrange the order of the widgets, click the Reorder option on the toolbar to enable it, and then move the widgets around as necessary. After you've finished rearranging the widgets, click the Reorder option again to disable it.
