How do you create a CSplitterWnd that has as its subpanes non CView derived classes?
Specifically, I want a CSplitterWnd with 2 columns.  In the first column is a CTreeCtrl derived class, and in the second column is a CListView derived class.
When I try and use these classes directly in calls to CSplitterWnd::CreateView they aren't created and the splitter doesn't redraw the splitter bar correctly.

What you can do is to create a class derived from CView and all it does is be a holder to a control. For example, you can use something like this:

  class CLeftView : public CView
  {
    public:
      CTreeCtrl* m_TreeCtrl;
    // rest
  }

Then in the CLeftView::OnCreate(), create the m_TreeCtrl. Then when the CLeftView receives the following messages: WM_SETFOCUS and WM_SIZE, you need to something to the control. For focus, set the focus to the tree control. For sizing, resize the control to the entire size of the client area of the view. That way, you can make any control behave like a view.

In the long run, this will be easier.
