Pop out window

2 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create a GUI with, say, an options button that pops up another box with, well, options for the program. I know I could do this as a second GUI window that's a child of the first, but I fancied making it sorta pop out from the side or bottom of my current GUI (kinda like the way the config drawer slides out from Winamp, but I don't care about sliding (well, not just yet anyway :-) ).

What I basically want to know, is, is there a way to resize a currently open GUI and draw some additional controls on this bit. Or, prolly more logical, draw it all at first, but have the GUI too small to show everything then re-size it to show this.

Does this sound do-able? Any pointers on what functions to look at?
