In a SDI application I need to create 4 windows that show different views of the same document.  The application will be split up something like this:
(CORRECT)
wwwwwwwwwwwwww
w1111w22222222222w
w1111w22222222222w
w1111w22222222222w
w1111w22222222222w
wwwww22222222222w
w3333wwwwwwwwww
w3333w44444444444w
wwwwwwwwwwwwww

In order to this, I am using nested splitter windows.  The problem is that when the application starts up, Windows #1 and #3 have a width of 0 (should be 150 pixels).  Windows #2 and #4 take up the entire 600 pixels (should only be 450 pixels)  However the heights of all windows are correct.  So when you start up the applications looks something like this:
(INCORRECT)
wwwwwwwwwwwwww
ww222222222222222w
ww222222222222222w
ww222222222222222w
ww222222222222222w
ww222222222222222w
wwwwwwwwwwwwww
ww444444444444444w
wwwwwwwwwwwwww

Here's my code.  What am I doing wrong??
BOOL CMainFrame::OnCreateClient( LPCREATESTRUCT lpcs,
      CCreateContext* pContext)
{
      
      VERIFY(m_wndSplitter.CreateStatic(this,1,2));

      if (!m_wndSplitterLeft.CreateStatic(&m_wndSplitter,2,1,WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER,
            m_wndSplitter.IdFromRowCol(0,0)))
      {
            TRACE0("Failed to create left nested splitter window\n");
      }

      VERIFY(m_wndSplitterLeft.CreateView(0, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CXmlTree), CSize(150,300),
            pContext));
      VERIFY(m_wndSplitterLeft.CreateView(1, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CAttrList), CSize(150,100),
            pContext));

      if (!m_wndSplitterRight.CreateStatic(&m_wndSplitter,2,1,WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER,
            m_wndSplitter.IdFromRowCol(0,1)))
      {
            TRACE0("Failed to create right nested splitter window\n");
      }
      VERIFY(m_wndSplitterRight.CreateView(0, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CXmlFileView), CSize(450,375),
            pContext));
      VERIFY(m_wndSplitterRight.CreateView(1, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CErrorMsg), CSize(450,25),
            pContext));

      return TRUE;
}

Try this before return

      m_wndSplitter.SetColumnInfo( 0, 150, 150 );
      m_wndSplitter.SetColumnInfo( 1, 150, 150 );
      m_wndSplitter.RecalcLayout();



Will work ...worked for me.

Luck,
Waseem.
