Hi
I am trying to adopt as much of the AUI interface as possible in the forms I am building for my portlets. There is one piece of documentation though that is sadly missing and that is the use of tags - i.e. we should be able to see the jsp code that generates the demo pages.

For instance I am trying to use the aui:panel tag but get jsp compilation errors that refer to a line in the code that seems to need a parentId:
parentId = panelFloatingContainerTag.getId();
Yet I have the panel inside a div which has a unique id.

There is no documentation indicating that this is required, and so I resort to looking for examples to mimic what they do to get things working.

Actually just realized that that was with the older liferay-ui panel tag - as the aui:panel tag has no defaultState so cannot be closed to start with?

I'm just starting with Liferay and I think this is exactly what I need.
But I'm new to Java but have over 15 years experience with other web systems
Can you give me a blow by blow on where to start...
I can use "ant" just so basic walk through would be great...

Thanks
