Now that sounds pretty good and a nice way to learn the code to generate.

When looking at how I would then actually invoke the dialog (in plugins.py) when the user clicks within the Preferences dialog I found a whole bunch of stuff to do with a "config_widget" function. Presumably this is to support the existing "complex" dialogs like the metadata reader plugins. So looks like there is some kind of infrastructure there that I would need to hook into anyway to allow my custom dialog content to be displayed. I'll do some investigating. Thanks again.
