Creating a view widget while in a composite application
The "Configure a widget from the current context..." will only work in a view. It will not work if you have selected a view within a composite application. To use this option on a view displayed in a composite applicaton you can do the following...
If the view is in an external database open the database in question and select the view there.
If the view is contained within the same database as the composite application then close the application. Then hold down the left ALT+SHIFT+CTRL and open the composite application. This disables the comp app and allows you to get direct access to the view. Once you have created your view widget you can close the application and reopen as normal.
