A ptcs-dynamic-panel has two containers, a panel and a main container. The main container is always visible. The panel can be expanded or collpased. When collapsed it is typically hidden, but may chose to show a part of itself. The panel can share the space of the main container or fly over it.

The ptcs-dynamic-panel has a trigger button that toggles the expansion mode and a resize thumb that allow the user to manually resize the panel. Both parts can be hidden.

The dynamic panel can be used to implement splitter windows, fly-out panels, accordians, etc.
