I don't know a lot about the UI javascript but there are two pieces to
code: the plugin to define the attribute and the UI to consume it.

It sounds like you've done both. What I'm interested in is how you
configured the plugin. Can you share the code?

The UI downloads all the available commands and options as metadata and
uses that to help drive some of the interactions.
