Can I create expandable regions on a control?

Can I create expandable regions on a UserControl or Form like Resource Monitor(Windows Task Manager-> Performance Tab->Click Resource Monitor button)  uses in Vista?

So, e.g. I could create a series of panels with different controls but be able to hide a panel and its contents and the size of the UserControl or Form adjusts to the size of the contents on display.

Using WPF something like can be achieved using the Expandable Region content but my app is written using GDI+ and I don't really want to convert it.

The answer, of course, is "of course".

you can do it several ways... the way that pops to mind for me is to make essentially, a form with a button vertically above a CPanel.

When the button is clicked, you grow the height of the CPanel.. when the button is clicked again... shrink it.

If I had 3 or 4 of these panels one below the other : does that mean I would have to recalculate the height of the form as each panel is collapsed or expanded and dock each panel onto the one above it or just reset it's location?
