Is it possible to display artifact comparison result side by side in pop window using API or any other means

 This one is little complex therefore I request you to please read through entire content of question.

I found this API which opens artifact picker or a pop-up window which lets user select an artifact (single artifact or module)
Artifact picker API - RM.Client.showArtifactPicker(function (pickResult) {});
I am looking for a way to display pop-up window which will display side-by-side comparison of artifact between source configuration and target configuration.
When we compare configurations in DNG, on the last page of Comparison Result all artifacts are displayed in side-by-side comparison view showing comparison between source and target configuration. If you click on any artifact (not module) then it shows side-by-side comparison of all attribute values for that artifact. If you click on modified artifact within module then it opens a pop-up window which displays side-by-side comparison for that artifact.
I want to use this feature in my custom extension to display side-by-side comparison of artifact. Is there a way or is it possible to plugin this functionality of DNG in our custom code
I am using DNG

There's a comparison API for configurations in DOORS Next 7.0.2 but not in earlier versions - see

Thanks for sharing the article,  I was aware of comparisons API which is available starting version 7.0.2 but this article have so many other useful items as well. I have developed custom solution for comparing two configurations and it gives me modified artifacts, my intention is to show pop up window similar to what DNG shows I.e. side-by-side comparison view from my custom widget. I am looking for a way to achieve it.
