Ok. Was just thinking of some small non-gnome applications...

Well, I just wanted to know if the work was allready done.

Just in case I was missunderstood. I did ask if I could make a dockable window, belonging to one application, and drop it into another application. And the dockable window would sit there (not turning into an icon or something), behaving like a child control, until I grabbed it and pulled it away.

And the "container" would be notifyed about the docked thing.

Do bonobo provide this functionality, or do I have to write the DnD thing about the window?
I do believe that the panel behaves a bit like this, right?

( I'm really sorry if I'm asking stupid things, but I havn't been able to run gnome for several months, so I havn't been able to see for myself. Hardware problems, and perhaps library problems too, if anyone happened to be interested... Last time I run Gnome, it did *not* work the way I was asking for. )
