I have to say this is a great piece of software. Ever consider making it open sourced?
Read all about it:
I see it is done with VB maybe a little C++ but is it available to open up in VB and see?
I think the short answer is that you can't see the source.
I was hoping that would be possible because I program myself and I would like to add new features to be of a convenience to me..
Fog Creek has discussed elsewhere that there are no plans to open the source of CityDesk. However, they have also mentioned the possibility of adding a documented external API in the future.
1) Is there a way for a user like me to program an add-in/or DLL or something to help personalize the program to fit my needs?
You can't change CityDesk source, but it *is* possible to create third-party add-on applications. Mike Gunderloy has created a small app that implements a few handy features. Search for CopyBoy in this forum.

We don't plan to open the source but we do plan to provide lots and lots of hooks and ways to extend things. But you have to tell us what you want to do so we know what hooks to add...
