Experts,

I've added a simple splitcontainer control, which has been set to vertical split, and fill.

I'd like to set the width of the left panel to 250px, is this possible?

Set spliContainer's FixedPanel property to Panel1, and sets Panel1MinSize to 250.

Unfortunately you can't set the panel directly:

mySplitContainer.Panel1.Width = 250

You can however change the SplitterDistance value:

spltHorizontal.SplitterDistance = 250;

However the splitter has some padding and whatnot so you'll have to adjust accordingly. It'll probably be something close to

spltHorizontal.SplitterDistance = 252;

Yes, your works too, with one addition: you also need to set FixedPanel property to Panel1, since when resizing, Splitterdistance also changes.
