Hi again, sorry for the delay.

We´re currently in the process of making a final delivery to our 
customers, and time is a little limited
Because of this I think we could have sample available in a week or two  
at the earliest. Unfortunatly...bare with us :-)

Deal :-)

A good example of this is our "Datepicker" function and complementing 
xsp. When this function returns, the user has clicked interacted and 
selected a date.  If one were to go a little further and actually 
declare a JavaScript object for it, it would be possible formalize its 
usage further.  This isn´t interacting with the db and could easily be 
packaged into a small sample app.
