For Profound UI versions starting with Version 6 Fix Pack 12.0 custom widgets can be designed to be treated as native Profound UI widgets. See pui.BasicWidget and Bidirectional Custom Properties. For earlier versions of Profound UI, see below.

When you create a custom widget, you may want to pass information from the widget to the server-side program (RPG, Node.js, etc.). Profound UI automatically passes bound field data from standard, non-custom widgets to the server-side program when the screen submits. With custom widgets, however, data in bound fields are not automatically passed to the server-side program. The reason custom widget data are not passed is because Profound UI cannot know how each custom widget stores its data1.
