The WgPluginInfo widget

Author: Christian Mayer
Available since: 2012


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

Note: The service helper from must be “installed” in the directory /var/www/ (i.e. the web root)


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: Pages and structure of CometVisu.

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.

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