Gregg,

Yura is on the IDRC team and is in step with the designs we've been working on. This, if I understand correctly, is an architectural conversation about how to use existing code for UIO which is the foundation for the PMT and PCP.

Best,
Jess

In fact, one of the developers at IDRC (Anastasia Cheetham) was already helping with something similar but in terms of the work on the Personal Control Panel. They are also trying to use it without the preview and only with a couple of text associated preferences widgets. Here is a good example of dependencies and configuration that you would need to be present on your html page (as I mentioned in my previous email, this process will get simplified in the near future):
