Look at it http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Admin_settings
General developer forum
I was hoping to find an example or documentation of how to make a group of settings that would be enabled/disabled based upon a checkbox on the same settings page. The wiki page says to find an example in the existing settings and copy it but I cannot find one nor any reference to creating one "The Moodle Way"
Am I just missing it because of being new to Moodle or has this not been done?
I am currently looking for a way to do the exact same type of thing with my plugin. You are correct that it is either not a part of the "Moodle Way" at this point, or it's terribly hard to find the documentation to support it.... or even an example of it.
What was your solution to the problem? I thought about doing it the way Jitendra mentions, but I'd much prefer to do it on the admin settings page.
