A collapsible panel user control.

Sample Image


Ever ran out of screen area to display all of the form widgets? Here's the solution, a control to manage your user interface widgets. A two state control container that expands and shrinks, giving a tidy effect to the UI.

Using the code

  1. Add CollapsablePanel.cs to your project or add the assembly to your project references.
  2. Open the host form in design view, drag and drop the control on the form.
  3. Drop all of the widgets required onto a panel (System.Windows.Forms.Panel).
  4. Arrange the widgets and set the "ContentPane" property of the control to the panel you made.
  5. Set the "Button_Text" for the caption text, "Animation_Rate", and "ContentPane_HEIGHT" (maximum height for the content pane).
