Posted on 2007-07-24

Hi Everyone,

I am a new programmer.  C#

I was wondering if anyone had a template for the expandable tabbed and pinable and undockable features of the sides of a gui which retract.  I seem to see it used very nicely in recent software packages and would like to know how to implemement them myself.  I have VS and don't see them as a tool box item I don't think.  So if someone has a template and or could give me the correct direction I would appreciate it.

Please allow me to express my gratitude in advance.

Best regards,

    Visual Studio or the .NET Framework does not ship with this type of advanced control, you can however use a few one or one of the many really nice commercial products.
