ZenPack Device Properties Display

I am working to create a zenpack for a device that we use within our network. I have been able to create modelers that collect a bunch of information via snmp and also ssh. They relate to the device at this point, though there will be more modelers and collectors for components.

The issue is I am not really finding an example of how to display device information in the web ui. The only examples I find are what I would consider a "kludge" where they wipe out one of the predefined fields and replace it with a field they have created. I would like to figure out a way to either create another complete page with display fields (no grid needed like components typically use). It would be nice like the device display to have "sections".

If anybody can explain how to do this and/or provide some example zenpacks that exist which do this it would be great. I am working with version 4.2.4 so I would like examples using that since the interface for displaying data seems to have evolved quite a bit over time.

I do this in my Trango zenpack, it adds an "Access Point Details" tab to Trango M-900 access points. It still seems to work fine with our 4.2.4 server:

It's not that pretty but it gets the job done.
