Hi,
 I can only create splitter window with a "Grid" style, i.e. 3x3, 2x4, and so on. And I do not know how to create a splitter window with different number of columns for each row. For example, there are three panes. One is on the top. The other two are in the second row. Can anybody tell me how to do this?

Hi! It`s simple just create second splitter as child of the first (horz) spliter.
for example:

class C3SplitterFrame : public CMDIChildWnd
{
      DECLARE_DYNCREATE(C3SplitterFrame)
protected:
      C3SplitterFrame();   // protected constructor used by dynamic creation

// Attributes
protected:
      CSplitterWnd m_wndSplitter;
      CSplitterWnd m_wndSplitter2;        // embedded in the first

// Implementation
public:
      virtual ~C3SplitterFrame();
      virtual BOOL OnCreateClient(LPCREATESTRUCT lpcs, CCreateContext* pContext);

      // Generated message map functions
      //{{AFX_MSG(C3SplitterFrame)
      //}}AFX_MSG
      DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()
};

BOOL C3SplitterFrame::OnCreateClient(LPCREATESTRUCT lpcs,
       CCreateContext* pContext)
{
      // create a splitter with 1 row, 2 columns
      if (!m_wndSplitter.CreateStatic(this, 1, 2))
      {
            TRACE("Failed to CreateStaticSplitter\n");
            return FALSE;
      }

      // add the first splitter pane - the default view in column 0
      if (!m_wndSplitter.CreateView(0, 0,
            pContext->m_pNewViewClass, CSize(200, 50), pContext))
      {
            TRACE("Failed to create first pane\n");
            return FALSE;
      }

      // add the second splitter pane - which is a nested splitter with 2 rows
      if (!m_wndSplitter2.CreateStatic(
            &m_wndSplitter,     // our parent window is the first splitter
            2, 1,               // the new splitter is 2 rows, 1 column
            WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER,  // style, WS_BORDER is needed
            m_wndSplitter.IdFromRowCol(0, 1)
                  // new splitter is in the first row, 2nd column of first splitter
         ))
      {
            TRACE("Failed to create nested splitter\n");
            return FALSE;
      }

      // now create the two views inside the nested splitter
      int cyText = max(lpcs->cy - 70, 20);    // height of text pane

      if (!m_wndSplitter2.CreateView(0, 0,
            RUNTIME_CLASS(...), CSize(0, cyText), pContext))
      {
            TRACE("Failed to create second pane\n");
            return FALSE;
      }
      if (!m_wndSplitter2.CreateView(1, 0,
            RUNTIME_CLASS(...), CSize(0, 0), pContext))
      {
            TRACE("Failed to create third pane\n");
            return FALSE;
      }

      // it all worked, we now have two splitter windows which contain
      //  three different views
      return TRUE;
}

just replace RUNTIME_CLASS(...) to the yours.
