More on server info

I been looking for how to present the information about the server in the server view. I kept going back to the UI for the Security Center in Windows XP. I couldn't find any controls out there that would mimic the controls in the Security Center. Again, I turned to my friend, Brandon Dobbie, and he created an expandable panel with functionality very similar to the ones in the Security Center.

This control has not been released yet. I'm doing private testing for him right now. He created this control in less than a day. It's still not ready for public consumption, but I'm very happy with the results so far.

Here's a screenshot with a Subversion server that has svnserve installed as a Windows Service:

This version of the server info view is a lot closer to the vision that I have for it. This is not the final form, but it is very close to it.

Brandon is building a couple more custom controls for me. These controls are mostly Vista and Windows 7 specific, but they should work with Windows XP.

The control is quite robust even so far, and will run on any OS with .NET 3.5 installed. I can easily create a 2.0 version as well if needed.
