TSplitter problem

Posted on 2007-11-16
Last Modified: 2008-02-26

Can anyone give me an example how to create a form with 1 TPanel, 3 TMemo and 2 TSplitter?

Those components (TPanel, TMemo, TSplitter) must be created during runtime.

The TPanel must be aligned to the whole form (alClient) and the 3 TMemo are separated by those 2 TSplitter.

try this:
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);

var Memo1, Memo2: TMemo;

    Panel: TPanel;

    Splitter1, Splitter2: TSplitter;


 Splitter1 := TSplitter.Create(Self);

 Splitter1.Align := alLeft;

 Splitter1.Parent := Self;

 Memo1 := TMemo.Create(Self);

 Memo1.Align := alLeft;

 Memo1.Parent := Self;

 Memo1.Lines.Text := 'memo1';

 Panel := TPanel.Create(Self);

 Panel.Align := alClient;

 Panel.Parent := Self;

 Panel.Caption := 'panel';

 Memo2 := TMemo.Create(Self);

 Memo2.Align := alRight;

 Memo2.Parent := Self;

 Memo2.Lines.Text := 'memo2';

 Splitter2 := TSplitter.Create(Self);

 Splitter2.Align := alRight;

 Splitter2.Parent := Self;

I don't know where you want to place the 3th TMemo, drop a line of you can't figure it out with this example.

What about this?

P.S. TPanel has align alTop instead of alClient in this example...
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);


    obj : TControl;


obj := TPanel.Create(self);

obj.Align := alTop;

obj.Parent := self;

TPanel(obj).Caption := 'panel';

TPanel(obj).Height := ClientHeight - 200; // leave 200px for TMemos

// 1st and 2nd memo; they will be added in reverse order, i.e., if we append TSplitter and then TMemo,

// TMemo will be added *before* TSplitter, therefore I start with 2nd TSplitter, then add 2nd memo, then

// 1st splitter, then 1st memo

obj := TSplitter.Create(self);

obj.Align := alLeft;

obj.Parent := self;

obj := TMemo.Create(self);

obj.Align := alLeft;

obj.Parent := Self;

TMemo(obj).Text := 'memo 2';

obj := TSplitter.Create(self);

obj.Align := alLeft;

obj.Parent := self;

obj := TMemo.Create(self);

obj.Align := alLeft;

obj.Parent := Self;

TMemo(obj).Text := 'memo 1';

// 3rd memo - alClient - takes the free space; doesn't have to be added before 1st and 2nd memo's

// because this is not alLeft

obj := TMemo.Create(self);

obj.Align := alClient;

obj.Parent := Self;

TMemo(obj).Text := 'memo 3';
