Looking for documentation on map designer objects syntax



I am looking for a document that describes the syntax and meaning of the commands found in the HTML file for the MAP objects.

<div class="map_object map_table <#sensor type="colorclassofstate" prefix="map_objectstate_" id="<@objectid>">" id="<@itemid>" objectid="<@objectid>" subid="<@subid>" style="overflow:hidden;<#mapobject type="coordinates" subid="<@subid>" mode="<@editmode>">">
<#mapobject type="objectgrip" mode="<@editmode>">
<#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>">
<#checkobjecttype objecttype="probenode,group,device" nicemessage="true" id="<@objectid>">
  <p><b><#objectproperty name="Name" id="<@objectid>"></b></p>
	<div id="Plugin_<@itemid>"
    class="prtg-plugin deviceoverviewsensorvalues"

I understand some of the terminology, but I do not know the options or how they work together. I have seen some documentation regarding objects, but nothing with the details I need to make the changes I am hoping to do.

Hello Derek,
thank you for your KB-Post.

Please be aware that although it's possible to modify map-objects, this is not officially a product feature/supported, thus there's no official documentation I'm afraid.

Best Regards,
