A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
I'm creating a desktop application (using the .NET platform). I would like to design the main form of my application such that various bits of functionality can be added as widgets (resizable, configurable and so on) - kind of like what people do with iGoogle & NetVibes. Are there any libraries/controls/design paradigms that you'd suggest for something like this?

Do you mean controls are added at RUNTIME, by the user?
WPF is definitely a good start. There are some interesting projects in the work in this space - see if these help:
And also check out the tool vendors themselves, such as http://www.infragistics.com/
Can you give a bit more detail on what you are trying to do?
