Dropdown Tool Panel or Tray

Greetings Everyone,

           I have seen some great mapping applications out there that utilize drop down panels or trays to organize map functionality. Usually there is a little bar that you click on to open the tray expose a set of tools. When you click on the tray's bar again the panel closes.
           I would like to use something like this in a mapping application that I am building. I am in the research stage of the build and have no idea what these trays are called much less how to build one. Does anyone have any information that they could share with me to help me in building one of these dropdown trays or panels. Searchable terms would be a great help too.

Thanks, Tyler Waring

Thanks for your reply YungKai.

I finally used the right search phrase 'Collapsable Panel' and found what I needed. I am going to use something like this...

to create a dropdown tray with some tools in it.

Thanks for your reply.
