A splitter is a visual separator between two grouping elements. It allows the user to resize the adjacent groups.



Is this the right control

  • Always put a splitter between aligned, resizable grouping controls to allow individualization for users.


  • Store splitters' position and adjust control size accordingly on next login.


  • Define a minimum size for areas that cannot be undercut by users.
  • Make splitters at least 5 pixels wide so that they can be easily clicked by any input device.
