This zimlet will display in the Zimlet panel. Right-click on the zimlet and three menus items will be displayed. The first two menu items will fire action url events.

  • The first menu item will open a 300x300px canvas window.
  • The second menu item will open a window as determined by the Zimlet framework.

User properties of various types (string, password, number, date, boolean & enum) are defined. The zimlet uses the "my_test_username" property as a parameter to the action url in the second menu item. The user properties are set by double-clicking on the panel item to present the Property Editor dialog.

The Zimlet ZIP Package contains only one file: the Zimlet Definition File.
