Example

The following fragment shows how to create a splitter window, creating two subwindows and hiding one of them.

splitter = new wxSplitterWindow(this, -1, wxPoint(0, 0),
wxSize(400, 400), wxSP_3D);
leftWindow = new MyWindow(splitter);
leftWindow->SetScrollbars(20, 20, 50, 50);
rightWindow = new MyWindow(splitter);
rightWindow->SetScrollbars(20, 20, 50, 50);
rightWindow->Show(false);
splitter->Initialize(leftWindow);
// Set this to prevent unsplitting
// splitter->SetMinimumPaneSize(20);

The next fragment shows how the splitter window can be manipulated after creation.

void MyFrame::OnSplitVertical(wxCommandEvent& event)
{
if ( splitter->IsSplit() )
splitter->Unsplit();
leftWindow->Show(true);
rightWindow->Show(true);
splitter->SplitVertically( leftWindow, rightWindow );
}
void MyFrame::OnSplitHorizontal(wxCommandEvent& event)
{
if ( splitter->IsSplit() )
splitter->Unsplit();
leftWindow->Show(true);
rightWindow->Show(true);
splitter->SplitHorizontally( leftWindow, rightWindow );
}
void MyFrame::OnUnsplit(wxCommandEvent& event)
{
if ( splitter->IsSplit() )
splitter->Unsplit();
}
