I tried this, and indeed can create such a widget (QToolButton or 
QPushBtuuon) with a handle to a layer to do things with it.
But I can only add it to a layer in the legend via the properties 

If I try to add the widget via the addLegendLayerActionForLayer

btn = self.refresh_button_provider.createWidget(self.measurements_layer, 

it does not show up in the legend. (the same button DOES show up (and 
works) if I do via Layer Properties/Legend dialog).

Should I be able to add such a button/action to just that layer via 

Or do I miss something here?
