Plug-in example: How to add a menu module


This article walks you through the steps you need to perform to add a custom module into the interface module.

Interface description

To add a new menu item, create an XML file:

#cat /usr/local/mgr5/etc/xml/ispmgr_mod_menu.xml  
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mainmenu level="admin+">    
<node name="account">         
<node name="myfunc" />    

<handler name="myaddon" type="xml"> 
<func name="myfunc" /> 

<lang name="ru"> 
<messages name="desktop"> 
<msg name="menu_myfunc">Test</msg>

Be sure to specify the path /usr/local/mgr5/etc/xml/ and name ispmgr_mod_.xml

The XML file must have read/write permissions for the root user.

As we can see in the file, in the mainmenu section we specify the level where this module will be available. In our example — admin+ — super admin level.

— means that the menu item will be added into the "Accounts" section.

— add your function. Please note: make sure that the function with corresponding name is created in the control panel. Otherwise, our module won't be available in the menu.

Adding a custom function

Create an add-on to add the myfunc function:

<handler name="myaddon" type="xml"> 
<func name="myfunc" /> 

Locate the add-on in the /usr/local/mgr5/addon/ directory

# cat /usr/local/mgr5/addon/myaddon  
cat /tmp/tmp

Clicking the Test section (this name was specified in the lang section) will call myaddon to send the XML with required data to the panel stdin.

In our example the function returns the following data:

# cat /tmp/tmp  
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Set permissions for the handler with the following commands:

chmod 750 /usr/local/mgr5/addon/<handler_file_name>
chown 0:0 /usr/local/mgr5/addon/<handler_file_name>

Restart the panel killall core to apply the changes.
