I have 2 problems related with collapsed panel (in border layout).

1. in previous ext versions there were a border layout private method: floatCollapsedPanel

how can i now programatically flout in collapsed panel (i dont want to expand it just float over other components)..

2. there were also a method slideOutFloatedComponent that i utilized to prevent floating panel to collapse on mouse out... How can i now achieve this? i only want floating panel to collapse on clickin onto header.

in one word - i d wish to have some controll over floating in and out a collpased panel...
