Addon Field Attributes

Hello CS-Cart Dev Gurus,

I am very close to finishing an addon but I found that it will not be as useful to the general populace as it would be to a web developer because they don't want to be bothered with having to learning CSS, LESS, etc.

I am currently using and fields in the addon.xml file to capture the output for the addon.

What I would like to do is use the built-in WYSIWYG editor and the color picker to manage the HTML content and the CSS of individual elements, respectively.

Has anyone had any experience with this that they would be willing to share?

I've tried using the template and adding a template with WYSIWYG but I was unable to capture form input and save it for use.
