View Full Version : Toolbar Button Similar But Different to ComboBox

My boss would like to see a list of Notifications (much like those in Facebook) that drops down from a Toolbar button. I hesitate to use a ComboBox because the user may click the dropdown area and execute some functionality that it will contain. I don't want the dropdown closing every time someone clicks it.

I'm thinking about using a standard Toolbar button that opens a positioned panel under the toolbar. That panel would contain the data and controls. Does this sound like the best way to do this? Is there something already out there?

Correct. Make the panel floating:true and align it to the button when showing it.
