Hi experts :-)

I have a splitter window made of CScrollView & CEditView.  But the windows are not equally splitted. I want the windows to be splitted equally even when it's resized. i.e, maximize and restore.

Also I would  like to align(center) the buttons in cformview.

There is no easy way of achieving this.  I would look at adding some code to reposition the splitter when the frame has been resized then do a recalclayout to force the rest to resize.

hi experts :-)

I had tried the following two ways.  still it didn't help me.

1st method
---------------
oncreateclient()
{
CRect rect;
      GetClientRect( &rect );
      
      BOOL rtn = msplitwnd.CreateStatic(this, 2, 1);
      rtn |= msplitwnd.CreateView(0, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CSecondView), CSize(rect.right/2, rect.bottom/2 ), pContext);
      rtn |= msplitwnd.CreateView(1, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CSplitwndView), CSize(100, 100), pContext);

}

2nd method
oncreate()
{
      m_wndToolBar.GetWindowRect( &toolrect );
      ScreenToClient( toolrect );

      m_wndStatusBar.GetWindowRect( &statusrect );
      ScreenToClient( statusrect );

      rect.bottom = rect.bottom ( toolrect.bottom + statusrect.bottom );

      msplitwnd.SetRowInfo( 0 , rect.bottom , 0 );
      msplitwnd.RecalcLayout();

}

Have you tried creating them both with the same size say (10,10)

Author

Commented:
yes, first I had tried with CSize(100, 100).  Since the windows(panes) are not equally distributed (or) splitted, I had tried the other methods.

Adjust points to 50, and I will help.

I've just had to do something simliar and setting both size to Rect.W1dth()/2 during creation worked?  ie both my tree and my list view were initially the same size! heres the code I used (which does look much like you were doing anyway!
      m_HorizontalSplitter.CreateStatic( m_pFrameWnd,1,2);
      m_HorizontalSplitter.CreateView(      0,0,
                                                            RUNTIME_CLASS( ExclTreeView ),
                                                            CSize(FrameRect.Width()/2,10),
                                                            NULL);
      m_HorizontalSplitter.CreateView(      0,1,
                                                            RUNTIME_CLASS( ExclListView ),
                                                            CSize(FrameRect.Width()/2,10),
                                                            NULL);

      m_pFrameWnd->RecalcLayout();
