I think Ali means:
When some Windows application crashes, up bops a message box that says your application has just caused a DingDong exception. There are two buttons "Close" and "Details". "Close" junks the application. "Details" expands the message box to include a stack dump detailing the boob.
Ali needs to know how to make such a gadget.
Sort of...
That's my good deed of the day. Yours is to provide the code

Here's a quick code example of how to do this... basically, add the panel to the south of the contentpane, but hide it using setVisible(false). Then, in your buttons action listener, check the current name of the button. Depending on the name, swap the name of the button, get the preferred size of the details panel. If you are showing the details panel, add it's height to the height of the frame, and show it. If you are removing the details panel, hide it, then subtract it's preferred height from the height of the frame. validate() is needed after this to tell the frame it's contents need to be re-layed out again...
