.WDGT File Association 3

A WDGT file is a component file used by Adobe Captivate, a multimedia publishing application often used to create eLearning products. It contains a pluggable module, or "widget," that can be inserted into Captivate projects (.CPTX files). WDGT files are used for creating reusable components, such as pie charts or input forms.
