SplitContainer.Panel2MinSize Property

Definition

Gets or sets the minimum distance in pixels of the splitter from the right or bottom edge of Panel2.

public:
 property int Panel2MinSize { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int Panel2MinSize { get; set; }
member this.Panel2MinSize : int with get, set
Public Property Panel2MinSize As Integer

Property Value

Int32

An Int32 representing the minimum distance in pixels of the splitter from the right or bottom edge of Panel2. The default value is 25 pixels, regardless of Orientation.

Exceptions

The specified value is incompatible with the orientation.

Examples

The following code example shows a vertical splitter where the minimum size of Panel2 (the right panel) is set to 20 pixels, which is now the minimum distance the splitter can be from the right edge of the container. Other basic properties of a vertical splitter are also shown. This example is part of a larger example provided for the SplitContainer class.

// Basic SplitContainer properties.
// This is a vertical splitter that moves in 10-pixel increments.

Remarks

Use the Panel2MinSize property to prevent the splitter from moving too close to the right or bottom edge of the container. For example, you might want to prevent some of the display area of a TreeView from being covered.

If the Orientation property is Vertical (the default), Panel2MinSize returns the minimum distance in pixels that the splitter can be from the right edge of Panel2. If the Orientation property is Horizontal, Panel2MinSize returns the minimum distance in pixels that the splitter can be from the bottom edge of Panel2.
