Splitter Window


I want a window on the left side of my mainframe to put a tree control on, and I want it to be horizontally resizable (like the one you can make appear on the left of the internet explorer window). I'm making a multi-document application. Does anyone know how to do this fairly easily?

Well, fairly easy and anything Windows are often oxymoronic. :-)

That said, here are a few options:

1) There is a sample in the Platform SDK called EnumDesk (Enumerate Desktop)
which enumerates the elements of the Shell's namespace in the left pane and
provides detailed information in the right pane of a splitter window in the
way that the Explorer does it.

2) MFC provides a class named CSplitterWnd for MFC based applications.

3) A number of splitter implementations are found here:


4) When I needed a barebones skeleton for a splitter I started with some
code from a gent named J Brown that I found of the web but I seem to have
misplaced the link.

This is the link that I had trouble finding before:


Like all good samples, it provides all you need and nothing more.

Hi, I have a panel docked to the bottom of my form. This panel can be expanded vertically by clicking on a button. When the user click on the button again, the panel is then collapsed. The panel has a horizontal splitter, which the user can use to resize the panel when it is expanded. I would like to save the height of the panel when the user uses the splitter, so that when the panel is expanded via the button, it size will be...

In vs 2003 we were able to place a container (panel) on the bottom of a form, attach a splitter to the bottom, and place another container panel up top, set to fill. Then within the top panel, you could add two more panels, one docked to the left, attach a splitter to the left, then set the other panel to fill. This gives you one main top/bottom window with user resize capability, plus the ability to resize within the upper portion of...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
