The following code example shows a horizontal splitter whose top panel is defined as a FixedPanel so that it does not resize along with the container. Other basic properties of a horizontal splitter are also shown. This example is part of a larger example provided for the SplitContainer class.

// Basic SplitContainer properties.
// This is a horizontal splitter whose top and bottom panels are ListView controls. The top panel is fixed.
splitContainer2.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
// The top panel remains the same size when the form is resized.
splitContainer2.FixedPanel = System.Windows.Forms.FixedPanel.Panel1;
splitContainer2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
splitContainer2.Name = "splitContainer2";
// Create the horizontal splitter.
splitContainer2.Orientation = System.Windows.Forms.Orientation.Horizontal;
splitContainer2.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(207, 273);
splitContainer2.SplitterDistance = 125;
splitContainer2.SplitterWidth = 6;
// splitContainer2 is the third control in the tab order.
splitContainer2.TabIndex = 2;
splitContainer2.Text = "splitContainer2";
