The Task Panel could be made considerably more useful if the collapseable panels were just surfaces you could put arbitrary controls onto. Rihgt now it limits you to selectable items.
An example of this is:
I hate to be greedy, but what is really needed, is a UI component that behaves like the panels in 3D Studio MAX. For complex apps with lots of tweakable controls, I have not found anything better. The XP Task Panel could potentially serve this role if it had this sort of functionality.

Our current version already supports this. You can place a single Panel inside the XPTaskBarBox inside which you can place any Control you want. Any Items you provide will be drawn below this Panel.
Please check our User's Guide (at Tools\Docs\*.pdf) for more information.

Really? I completely missed that when reading about them. Maybe I just skimmed it too fast.
In that case, I could probably customize it from there with the MAX-like thin scroll bar and 'grab' hand for easier scrolling.
