I have some requirements that leads me to extend the functionality of a views plugin style implemented by a contrib. module by adding some fields and validations in it's configuration form.
I started to implement a custom module to alter this by extending the
contrib_views_plugin_style Class implemented by the contrib. module using the views API. I added the fields with no problem but I'm worried about the
render method because I don't want to have a copy of the contrib. plus my custom code and I still not sure if this is the best way to do this.
I plan to post this to d.o by posting a patch or maybe another contrib. module but it would be nice if I could keep just the new code and didn't have to have any duplicated code.
Here is the contrib module code:
There is another way to achieve this goal?
PS. I prefer to start without hacking the contrib module but if there is no way to do this it's OK.
