So far, in all the documentation and tutorials for UI Components that I've come across (Like the documentation here: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/ui_comp_guide/bk-ui_comps.html, or in this sample module: https://github.com/magento/magento2-samples/tree/master/sample-module-form-uicomponent), you can only create UI Components as a separate page/route in the backend.

I want to create a UI Component that functions as a parameter in a widget. Is there a way to do this? Specifically, I want to do something along these lines:

In widget.xml:

<widget class="MyWidgetClass">
    <label>My Widget</label>
            <parameter name="product" xsi:type="SOME_UI_COMPONENT">

Is there a way to make something like this happen? If I do create a UI component as a parameter, how do I get the parameter values to save in the widget?

You can use this Magento 2 module. https://github.com/graschik/magento-2-admin-ui/blob/HEAD/docs/widgets/using-ui-components/README.md


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widgets xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    <widget id="example_widget_with_ui_components"
        <label translate="true">Example Of Widget With Ui Components</label>
        <description translate="true">Example Of Widget With Ui Components</description>
            <parameter name="component_data" xsi:type="block">
                <block class="Grasch\AdminUi\Block\Adminhtml\Widget\Ui\Components">
                        <item name="namespace" xsi:type="string">widget_example_form</item>
