    MDI App help - point me in right direction

    (WIN32 API)
    Im familiar with win creation and controls but Im having trouble finding info on something, probably because I dont know exactly what its called. In a MDI application Ive seen four separate windows in the client area all divided by a " t " shaped bar running horizontally and vertically across the center of the client area, acting as the child window edges ( think 3d modeling program views). Id like to know what thats called and if anyone has any direct links to how to start implementing it.

    There is no API function to create a splitter window. Those are created by making 3 separate windows. There is a window on the left, a window which serves as the bar in the middle, and a window on the right.

    If you are using MFC, then you can use the CSplitterWnd control which does all the hard work for you.
