Hi all,

I am creating a dashboard on the right hand side of which I need to display the recent updates/news somewhat as shown in the section 'Latest errors and warnings' in the following picture -

One way is to have top panel and then inside I may have nested panels with the white background , but I feel it would be too heavy and also need to look how to add panels on page load i.e number of news are not static

For now there is no automatic refresh of the news section using AJAX.

Can anyone help me ? Do we have any control in extJS which I can use out of box.

How are you currently achieving the "Latest errors and warnings" panel? Can't you use the same techinique here?

To be honest, from your explanation it sounds like you need to use a dataView or listView? This can then run off of a store, and easily handle any number of news items.
