Controls used in ibm.com ?

Does anybody know what controls in xPages can be used to mimic www.ibm.com ? How would a panel show and disappear in xPages as when you click on Solutions there?

Any comments will be appreciated.  Thanks!

There is no inbuilt control for this. You can make panels show / disappear using the rendered property and SSJS:
getComponent("ID").setRendered(true / false); 
But this will only make it open / close, not add that slide effect. Viewing the source its easy to notice that there is dojo attach points on the panel that shows / hides, my guess would then be that its using some dojo transition (which most likely uses CSS 3 animations) to move it in / out.

 Thank you for your reply! I'm new to xPages and wanted to make sure no controls were out there already in the palette.
