Thanks for your contribution. This will be very handy if someone tries to find information on this widget in the forums and it would be wonderful if more people would share their knowledge.
As for the StyleGuide Template it does use all the widgets and has an overview explanation in the Help tab (http://<server>/Template/Help_StyleGuideOverview.aspx).
To see it working with data you need to click the "Click here to load sample data" button.
And be sure to keep those contributions coming :)
Apologies not accepted as they were not needed in the first place :).
Thank you for "thinking out loud", the problems you have faced can also block many others so please keep on posting in these forums as I'm sure your contributions will help lots of people.
