Hello,

How would one go about adding a collapsible menu in a tool palette similar
to the AutoCAD properties palette (I.e. general plot style etc)

From what I understand, the collapsable control used in AutoCAD's palettes is not exposed. You would need to find a similar one of your own, or build your own custom control.

Follow these steps:

1. In the Visual Studio IDE, right click on your Toolbox,
and choose "add/remove items".

2. In the Customize Toolbox dialog, click the "Browse" button.

3. Navigate to your AutoCAD program folder, and select
the file AcCustomize.dll.

4. In the customize toolbox dialog, you will see several items
selected and checked. Click on the Assembly name column
to group them together.

5. Uncheck all of the selected items, except for the one
named "CollapsablePanel", then click OK.

6. In ToolBox, on the Windows Forms pane, you should
find a new item named "CollapsablePanel".

7. Create a new Form, and drop several CollapsablePanel
controls on it, select them all and set their Dock property
to Top.
