Create widget group

Widget groups are used to group widgets into tabs. This will have an effect when adding new widgets to an dashboard. See Adding Widgets to get an idea of the UI.

Groups are defines as PHP array in Configuration/Backend/DashboardWidgetGroups.php:


return [
    'general' => [
        'title' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:widget_group.general',
    'systemInfo' => [
        'title' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:widget_group.system',
    'typo3' => [
        'title' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:widget_group.typo3',
    'news' => [
        'title' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/',
    'documentation' => [
        'title' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:widget_group.documentation',

The file has to return an array of groups. Each group consists of an array key used as identifier and an single option title. The title will be processed through translation and can be an LLL reference.

Each extension can create arbitrary widget groups.

Widgets can be assigned to multiple groups using the groupNames. Please read Register new Widget to understand how this is done.
