Add vertical and horizontal splitter bars to your application. This code creates a form with three panes, and two splitter bars. I originally found the code in Planet Source Code last year, but found a couple of bugs, so I rebuilt it from scratch, and added the horizontal splitter. There are no DLL's or references to worry about, very easy to use.

Inputs:It is easy to integrate into your applications. You simply paste whatever objects that you want To use into one of the three picture boxes used as frames. Then In the _Resize Event of each, change the .Move statement To your object (or control).

Assumes:Copy the code and paste it into a text editor (like notepad). Save the file as Form1.frm. You can always change it later.
