A display panel is mounted in a bracket attached to a slide arrangement so that the panel is normally stored longitudinally within an electronics cabinet or the like, but is adapted for withdrawing to allow access to the display elements on the panel. The panel substantially reduces the number of display elements required for the exterior panel of the cabinet in which it is mounted. In Fig. 1, an electronics cabinet is shown generally at 10 and has a front panel 11 (shown partially broken). Display panel 12, shown in phantom in Fig. 1, is attached to bracket 15 which is, in turn, attached to slider 16 by means of pivot pin 18. Slider 16, in turn, is retained between rails 21 and 22 attached to rail support bracket 20 within cabinet 10.
