Bug BUG-000098656


Simple Map Viewer does not display the Locate Me button although the tool selected is on.

Additional Information

Due to security changes, the Locate Me widget will only show when the app is loaded with https. See this blog for more information: https://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2016/04/14/increased-web-api-security-in-google-chrome/

Alternate Solution

Use the Public Information App instead, the Locate Me button operates as expected in this application.
