8.3. Using RadSplitter
Our next component provides special page layout management. RadSplitter allows the logical division of a page in different areas called panes that are represented by objects of type RadPane. The panes can be separated by RadSplitBar objects that provide the ability to resize the panes in different ways, so you can, for example, make one pane bigger than another. You can also create collapsible panes, so users can maximize one pane by hiding the others.
RadSplitter also enables you to have sliding panes. These types of panes are represented by objects of type RadSlidingPane and work inside areas of type RadSlidingZone. Sliding panes can be extended, pinned, or hidden the same way as the side panels in Visual Studio.
