This structure is used with SDK:IWidgetsProvider interface.

Defines an Object's Info Pane widget.

struct SWidgetDefinition
  Sint32        fWidgetID;
  EWidgetType   fWidgetType;
  TXString      fWidgetText;
  bool          fWidgedVisible;
  bool          fWidgetEnabled;
  bool          fWidgetRed;

  IWidgetData*  fpWidgetData;

  // data support
  TXString      fRecordName;
  Sint16        fRecordParamIndex;


fWidgetID Sint32 Identifier for that widget.
fWidgetType EWidgetType Type of that widget. See remarks.
fWidgetText TXString Text that appears next to the widget.
fWidgedVisible bool true if the widget is visible on the page; false -- invisible.
fWidgetEnabled bool true if the widget is enabled on the page; false -- disabled.
fWidgetRed bool Determines if this widget is to be shown red in color.
fpWidgetData IWidgetData* This widget's data provider. The actual interface that this pointer refers depends on the widget type. See remarks.
fRecordName TXString Record name which is used as source for the data for this widget. If empty then the main record of the parametric object is used (the one that stores the parameters)
fRecordParamIndex Sint16 Index of the field in the record specified by 'fRecordName' that supplies the data for this widget.


The widget type is determined by EWidgetType enumeration, which can have the following values.

Also in the table you can see what interface is used as 'fpWidgetData' parameter.

You should cast 'fpWidgetData' parameter to the correct interface according to the type before accessing the correct widget data.
