What is a WDGT file?

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.

More Information

Widgets can be one of three types:

  • Static: Non-interactive and meant to display information.
  • Interactive: Allows user input and changes appearance based on the input.
  • Question: Can be used for asking multiple choice or free-form questions for a quiz.
NOTE: WDGT files are written in ActionScript and require a copy of Adobe Flash to be installed on the computer.
