SplitCon Help

SplitCon is a developer tool consisting of a demo form and a general purpose class library for adding "splitters" to any VFP application.  This work was loosely adapted from Doug Hennig's sample splitter class, which is described in his article "Splitting Up is Hard to Do" from the July '99 issue of FoxTalk, which is included in Microsoft's MSDN Library CD of 10/99.  I made a number of departures from Doug's approach in order to create a simpler, more modular facility, avoiding all dependencies on either the Stonefield framework or VFP's FFC (FoxPro Foundation Classes).  Also, SplitCon adds the generalizations of supporting a two-dimensionally split container, i.e. with multiple rows and columns of splitters, and it supports nested split sub-containers.

While there is little resemblance between my version of SplitCon and Doug Hennig's original design that inspired it, I'm grateful to Doug especially for his clarification of the use of  VFP's OLE Drag and Drop features and his idea of introducing the splitter cover object.
