The Panel control in the System Center 2012 – Service Manager Authoring Tool is a Layout control that helps you manage a group of related controls. Typically, you drag and position several controls that have a related purpose on the form on a panel control. Then, if you need to move the controls that are on the panel, instead of moving each control individually, you can simply move the Panel control.
Use the following procedure to add a Panel control to a form.
Ensure that the Form Customization Toolbox pane is open and that the form that you want to customize is open in the authoring pane.
Drag the Panel icon from the Form Customization Toolbox pane to the form. You can now add other controls on the Panel control.
