UserPref - Activates "Edit" Dropdown Option on Gadget?

After adding a few "UserPref"s to my custom gadget's XML, when I add the gadget to my dashboard and try to configure it through the dropdown/Edit option, nothing happens. Am I missing something? Here is the code below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>


<ModulePrefs title="Pref Test" author_email="" directory_title="Pref Test D-Title"

<Require feature="minimessage" />
<Optional feature="dynamic-height" />


<UserPref name="show_date" display_name="Show Dates?" datatype="bool" default_value="true"/>
<UserPref name="difficulty" display_name="Difficulty" datatype="enum" default_value="4">
<EnumValue value="3" display_value="Easy"/>
<EnumValue value="4" display_value="Medium"/>
<EnumValue value="5" display_value="Hard"/>
