I recently learned how to do skinning for Windows applications, however now I would like to create control panels that will slide in and out (similar to one of the Windows Media Player Skins). The idea is to have a round, elliptical, etc. Win32 dialog box but the control panel (Options, anything extra) will be hidden until a button is clicked then the control panel will smoothly slide down into position. Essentially I want a custom drop down box.

good online tutorials (that work) will also be accepted.

That is sort of the idea, Look at Windows Media Player and choose the Compact skin. I need my bars slider in and out slow and smooth.

Glad to help (I hope ;).
But if you're not sure, you don't have to accept an answer.
