Single Document Splitter Dynamic splitter windows

Is there a good way to create an application that can dynamically split one of it's child windows given input from the user.  The application that I am thinking about needs to utilize the whole document area.  Currently I have an MDI application with multiple floating child windows.  It's kind of a pain to pop up a new window and then start resizing all the other windows to fit the new one in.  So I was considering using splitter windows that could just be split horizontally or vertically, but it wouldn't necessarily follow the row/col format that splitter windows seem to have.  So you could start out with two windows split horizontally and then select the top window and split that vertically and then spit one of those horizontally and so on.

Or, is there some better way to make use of the document area?

Thanks

Have a look at the SCRIBBLE example.  That has dynamic splitter windows.

I still don't see that I can break away from the row,col format unless you can create a new splitter class within a split pane?

Soemthing like should be possible but you will have to embed a splitter within another spltter window.

Yes that's what I was thinking too, but I'm not sure if it would look professional.  Would the splitter bars match where there is the 'T' intersection?

The splitters would look like the + when you have the 4-pane look of horizontal and vertical split.
