    Application display area splitter

    Hi

    They're usually referred to as 'splitters' and there is no 'api' for them ie. no specific windows control so you'll have to create one yourself. This page should give you some ideas:

    In .NET it's called a Splitter. This is how you use it (from memory):
    Code:
    Splitter splitter = new Splitter();
    splitter.Orientation = SplitterOrientations.Vertical; // Up/down split
    splitter.Dock = DockStyle.Fill; // Fill the whole window
    this.Controls.Add(splitter); // Displays
    Man, you Win32 guys are so much more efficient
