I want to add panels or frames in web pages created in asp.net using vb.net. The panels should have round edges and title bar, and of course contains my server controls inside it. How to do that. Please supply me with clear explanation, and code in VB.net, I am not an expert.

you can do it in CSS or tables with Images to give the rounded corner effect. I have done both in the past, however I now use AJAX to add this sort of effect. See the following URL for info on the AJAX control toolkit

McExp is right, though AJAX seems like a pretty beefy way to do this (especially if AJAX isn't installed on the server). i would stick with CSS/tables as he first suggested. essentially, you create images for the pieces of the panel (like the header/body/footer) and use those as the backgrounds for table cells.

Dear McExp,
This is really great, Is there any change required on my code and programming way using VS 2005 in order to use Ajax controls toolkit? Is there any limitation? is the solution as simple as downloading these controls?.... I can not beleive it.. Is there any Menu control in this toolkit? Please reply to this comment, and get the points.. Thanks McExp

I downloaded the Ajaxtoolkit, but I have difficulty adding the controls to the toolbox, The web.config indicates the toolkit version should be 1.0.61025.0 but the downloaded dll is version 1.0.11119.0 (of course the public token key will be diferent as well, and accordingly I get a message like "Cannot load the System.Web.Extensions file ...."
is there a way to know the publickeytoken of the dll that I loaded, or do you have any advice?
Thanks
