When adding new menu items, feature actions, and map context items in Web Designer, you will now be presented with a higher-level set of contextually-relevant tools. The raw JSON view, and the list of granular commands are still available, but no longer the default experience.
When browsing for a workflow, report, or print template from your Esri portal, Web Designer now queries beyond the standard single "page" of results from Esri’s API (50 items), allowing you to find what you are looking for even when you have many Geocortex items in your portal.
Clicking the product logo in Web Designer now returns to the initial dashboard and safely closes any currently-open app.
The simple layer list in Geocortex Web is now configurable through Web Designer.
Geocortex Printing support has been added to Geocortex Web. This includes a new configuration component in Web Designer as well as a new Print tool that can be added to your Geocortex Web app. It is possible to print both 3D scenes and 2D maps. A print preview tool has only been provided for 2D maps at this time.
You can now type Ctrl+S to save your app in Web Designer.
Changes to correctly render Geocortex Web apps on mobile devices with appropriately-sized controls.
Updated the 2D/3D Toggle button in Geocortex Web to clarify which mode is currently active.
Extensive improvements to user-facing errors when they occur in Geocortex Web, such as when the app is unable to load due to unavailable map services. Improvements were also made to behind-the-scenes logging.
Improved WCAG AA compliance for keyboard navigation and screen reader support for basemap picker, bookmarks and on-map expander control.
Improved preservation of map/scene scale when toggling between 2D and 3D.
Several small fixes to the on-premises installer.
Allowed HTTP credentials to be sent to on-premises Portal for ArcGIS (supports certain authentication flows).
Corrected behavior when applying a new layout in Web Designer with the preview popped out.
Resolved an issue preventing the proper passing of a security token from Web Designer to the Geocortex Web preview when using federated secured services.
Ongoing fixes and improvements to Geocortex Workflow behavior within Geocortex Web.
Side-by-side or toggling 2D map and 3D scene visualization.
Performance optimization made possible by the new API technologies.
Improved control over color, and visual branding.
Clean, fresh visualization of results on the map, and in lists, tables, and detail views.
Familiar I Want To menus, toolbars, and contextual menu options.
WCAG AA accessibility compliance for public-facing applications.
Extensibility using 5-series Workflow and Reporting capabilities.
A new configuration model separating functional app behavior from layout appearance that allows multiple components of the same type.
In addition to an all-new viewer there is an all-new Geocortex Web Designer experience for designing and configuring applications. This new experience provides:
Quick verification of changes with a fully-interactive, live preview of your application.
Improved mechanisms for finding configuration settings through both a contextual filter and a visual component selector.
More space to work with larger areas for entering configuration and the ability to pop out the application preview onto a second monitor.
Application management with dedicated functionality for managing development, test, staging, and production versions of your application and its associated web maps and web scenes.
Initial components and capabilities include:
Map/Scene navigation controls
Base map gallery
Coordinates of mouse on map
Map context menu
Simple Layer list
I Want To menu
Geocortex Workflow support
Selections and highlighting
For the most part the Geocortex Web is working as designed and the initial features are well-tested and ready. That said, there are a few known issues that you should be aware of:
Layout editing. The underlying configuration model supports very flexible layouts, and we’ve begun working on a layout editing interface within Web Designer. Until then, modifying the layout means editing XML. In the Deployment area, you can access the configuration files from the menu beside Development and clicking Download as Zip File. When you are done editing and have re-zipped them, select Upload Zip File from the same location.
Mobile handheld devices. While supported, there is currently a scaling bug that renders components far too small on handheld devices. We are working on it, and you should see dramatic improvement in future versions.
Microsoft Edge. A supported browser, there is a current bug in the Esri stack that prevents authentication with Esri identities on Microsoft Edge. We anticipate this bug will be resolved by Esri soon.
