Can anybody tell me how to or at least point me in the general direction for creating layouts similar to Visual Studio's where you have these panes that auto hide and have the push pins to keep them displayed?  No rush, just curious how it's done.

Thanks guys.  I'm going to leave this up for another week and see if anybody can't give me some more info (either in VB or something I don't have to pay for).  If nothing happens then I'll close this and decide which route I'm going to take and divy the points based on that.
