I've re-styled the standard expander control to expand horizontally and I am looking for a way for the expander to "expand" over top of other controls on the window instead of pushing them around and forcing the UI to re-draw portions of itself.
This is a direct copy of the Visual Studio side and bottom menu pop out behaviors, if that helps anyone understand what I am trying to achieve.
I have searched these forums and I found a solution that involves using a Canvas to wrap around the expander but I was looking for a way to accomplish
this same task without the Canvas object. The reason for this is that canvas does not provide a method to resize its children and my expander currently can resize itself if provided more room. I do not wish to break this behavior.
I obviously tried setting the Panel.Zindex directly on my expander object but this didn't do much for me. If anyone has any suggestions I can try post them here so I can try to add them in over the next couple of weeks to my project. Thanks in advance
for any assistance!
