Custom UI Elements?


I'm interested in writing my own, custom UI elements. Is there a documented approach for this?

The <b>Web Dynpro UI Element Reference Guide</b> seems to imply that this might be possible. When discussing the various UI element libraries (core, standard, business graphics, etc.), it says:

<i>The grouping makes it easier to develop additional UI elements in the different development groups and the structure provides a better overview of the UI elements. In addition, it is easier to maintain the individual libraries.</i>

If I had to guess, I'd say that you would start by extending IWDViewElement or IWDUIElement (or some derivative class).

However, there are probably other supporting classes, eclipse plug-ins, etc. that are required. Furthermore, there are probably also steps to package and deploy a new library in your development environment and on your server.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?
