How to Create Custom Panels in Rhino

I want to create a custom panel very similar to the Layers panel in Rhino/Matrix, to be able to display some colors and their corresponding material names. I have a plugin that applies materials to objects based on layers colors; my panel will help my user know which color points to which material.

Is there a way to create custom panels this way? (I’m a Rhino user on Matrix 8)

What language are you programming in?

I Rhinoscript mostly and some Python. I’m not sure how much that restricts me.

If you want to create a docking panel, you will need to write a plug-in. Using RhinoScript or Rhino.Python won’t suffice.
