In this 25-minute developer focused demo, J.P. Roca addresses what are widgets, 3rd party widget platform, development environment prerequisites and 3 steps for creating your Win32 Widget.

Steps are:

  1. design widget (using Adaptive Cards),
  2. implement IWidgetProvider interface (methods for handling communications between widgets board and your app),
  3. register widget (changes to APPX Manifest).

Deploy your new widget. Widget development does not require a Windows developer, it does require Windows App SDK 1.2 Preview 2, target machines running Windows 11, and a review of referenced guidance. This demo is taken from the October 2022 Adaptive Cards community call recorded on October 13, 2022.
