Hello Experts,

I would like to learn how to be able to create web app similar to meebo.com (not the messaging, but the windows...).

I would like to be able to have windows (panels) which will have the ability to be minimized or maximized.
I guess there is a lot of ajax there.
How can it be done?
Please provide some examples.
Thanks

Ajax isn't required to make the windows minimize/maximize...but javascript is.
There are some simple ones out there:

as well as really nice commercial ones:

The Ajax collapsable panel let's you expand/collapse the panels, but if you look at the meebo.com site, the user is asking for the ability to maximize/minimize/resize the panels like an MDI interface in a windows app.

Thank you for your reply, you are perfectly right, this is exactly what I want :)

The examples are great (off course I'm looking for something free), but do you know about something a little bit more integrated with ASP.NET?
I would like to work with ASP "Panel" and not iFrame if it is possible.....

free and integrated with asp.net will be difficult to find....if you look at the dynamic drive example and you've done work on creating custom controls, it wouldn't be too difficult to come up with your own asp.net control based off that example
