What i am trying to do is give the users the ability to click a button and then text boxes and lables and etc expand and contract based on which button. For example you have two headers one header Top Info and another Detail Info. You click the button beside Top Info and text boxes and labels appear below the Header with the Detail Info below. I seen this idea on Microsoft Share Point it is similiar to expandable Frames. The page i have now has a ton of text boxes and labels on for entering data in to a database. I am tasked now to clean the page up with out loosing any of the text boxes. So i thought if i could allow the users to collapse and expand sections as they need to I think it should clean the page up!

Any ideas! Hopefully you can understand what i am saying.

Thanks,

look at the atlas toolkit. They have a collapsable panel control that might do what you are looking for

How do you get this tool kit to work with a regular ASP.NET Web Page.
I downloaded the tool bar but i can not get to use the tools.
