It is assumed you know how to add panels to your layout. Basic guides can be found below.

Default UI

Columns UI


As of component version 3.2.16, Columns UI users can add panels as a Toolbar and this enables transparency for the panel.

In addition to being available from right clicking any existing Toolbar, you can also get the same effect in full size panels when added from the Layout preferences. Right click a splitter and choose Insert panel>Toolbars>JScript Panel 3. You probably only want to do this when used in conjunection with Panel Stack Splitter!


Since the learning curve for writing your own scripts is quite steep, there are many included samples that don't require any knowledge at all. You can simply pick the one you want to use from the Samples button in the Configuration Window.

The Gallery has recently been updated with more detailed setup notes / usage instructions.
