how to make custom toolbar panel?

Hello guys, where can i find information of how to make custom toolbar panel?

I am checking here https://docs.flightsimulator.com/html/index.htm but i can't find anything, my idea is create a panel that connects to an external website

Also i wasn´t able to find any documentation about the JS apis, probably related with this, Add JS/HTML documentation to the SDK - MSFS DevSupport (flightsimulator.com)

You are right. Documentation on that is currently lacking.

There is a good resource on github about how to get your own toolbar going. https://github.com/bymaximus/msfs2020-toolbar-window-template

That example appeared to have a fair amount of "dead" code. In case it helps someone else, here is a variation that is stripped down even further:

It seems that both these repositories no longer compile :-(

I think something has changed in the most recent updates.
