there is no SetNormal() method but a plane normal can be defined from 3
and vtkImagePlaneWidget allows SetPoint1(), SetPoint2(), SetOrigin() .

try this (pseudocode):

if you define your normal from an origin, o and 2 other points p1, p2
such that p1 , p2 and o define a plane (and also 3 corners of the widget)
then a normal to the plane, n, can be found with
po1 = p1 - o;
po2 = p2 - o;
n = po1/||po1|| x po1/||po2||

where x is the cross product operator and ||.|| is the norm of a vector.
To set the widget's plane normal, you do so indirectly from p1, p2 and o:
