I'm about to get away for a week on vacation, but before I do I thought I'd leave some practical samples of the Common User Information file in the form of a calendar and weather objects.
If you need a sample CUI file it can be found here: http://www.desktopx.net/standards/dxCUI.xml
Once you have this, place it in your DesktopX directory and exit it to your details.
The samples are here:
The Base Weather Template has also received an update in the DX Objects Library
Hopefully these will encourage you to start working with the CUI. There is an updated DX pack
for developers giving samples on how to interact with it.
I'll look at doing the GUI for editing the CUI when I return.
