The Electric version of RViz did not have a supported plugin API, there is no tutorial for it.

Note: The RViz plugin API and library API were preliminary in Fuerte. They have changed significantly in Groovy without backwards compatibility, so we encourage developers to program plugins for Groovy. We expect the plugin API to be much more stable going forward.

The Fuerte version of the tutorial can be found here: http://ros.org/doc/fuerte/api/rviz_plugin_tutorials/html/display_plugin_tutorial.html
