The WgPluginInfo widget

Available since version: 2012
Author: Christian Mayer


Adds an dynamic field to the visu that shows live information from a WireGate plugin.


For a general understanding of how the configuration files are structured and what elements and attributes are it is recommended to read this section first: visu-config-details.

The behaviour and appearance of the WgPluginInfo widget can be influenced by using certain attributes and elements. The following tables show the allowed attributes and elements and their possible values. The screenshots show, how both can be edited in the editor.

Attributes underlined by ..... are mandatory, all the others are optional and be omitted.

Allowed attributes in the WgPluginInfo-element

Allowed child-elements und their attributes


It is possible to manually edit the visu_config.xml and add an entry for the WgPluginInfo widget.


Make sure that you only use UTF-8 encoded characters by settings the encoding in your XML-editor to UTF-8 mode!
