I have an MDI app that I would like to have like an "output" section at the bottom, very much like VC++ 6.0. This should be resizable, but does not not need to be dockable, although should have the capability to be hidden/closed. Ideally it should house a list control that I can output text to.
Each of my MDI child window has two vertical splitters, making it have in essence three columns. I am thinking I could possibly use splitters again on the main frame, but am not sure how.
Obviously, if the "output" pane is visible, maximising a child window should only take up the remainder of the main frame's space and not all of it as per normal.
Anyone have any ideas on this ?
