    dockable windows/toolbars


    ok, i need to duplicate the effect that microsoft word toolbars create. let
    me explain. when attached to the main form they look like normal toolbars,
    but when you drag them away, they become windows. i am using vb.net and would
    like to program this effect. can anyone help.

    Try posting to the vb.dotnet.technical newsgroup. This newsgroup is for general
    UI _design_ questions rather than vb.net programming questions.

    Look at www.coalesys.com. Their new WebMenu control is both dockable and
    movable.
