I am creating an extension for Illustrator CS6 using CS SDK 2. My extension has the ability to open up multiple panels and each panel has its own window. I want all panels in a single window similar to the Layers panel in Illustrator (Layers\Artboards in a single window as tabs). The scenarion is:

1. Panel A is the defaul panel of my extension and opens up through Window->Extensions->My Extension.

2. On Panel A i have a button that will open Panel B using the code:

     var newPanel:Window = new Window();

     newPanel.type = CSXSWindowType.PANEL;

     newPanel. width = 400;

     newPanel.height = 400;;


This is what i get:



This is what i want:



I can not figure out how to combine the panels through code when they open up.

Kindly help.
