Splitter Control (Windows Forms)

Windows Forms Splitter controls are used to resize docked controls at run time. The Splitter control is often used on forms with controls that have varying lengths of data to present, like Windows Explorer, whose data panes contain information of varying widths at different times.


Although SplitContainer replaces and adds functionality to the Splitter control of previous versions, Splitter is retained for both backward compatibility and future use if you choose.
