How to retrieve PCD Information from an iview?

I want to add an additional (Description) Option in the drop down menu of the Personalization icon for all the iviews. When this option is clicked it should display the description of the iview that was captured at the time of creating the iview.

Using page builder APIs I can add an additional option to the drop down for a custom java iview. But I want this description option available for all the iviews (Custom java iviews and URL iviews). Also how do I access the value for the description of an iview that is stored in the PCD?

So the question is how to add an additional option in the personalization menu for all the iviews and how to access the description of an iview that is stored in the PCD from the new option.

    One way I found of retrieving information on the iView is using Javascript... I needed to find out the page the an iView was on, so I did <b>window.parent.document.location.search</b>. It took a bit of fooling around to figure that out, but something like this might help.
