Hello. I am trying to create a dialog box that has a navigation section that remains static, and a content section that changes depending on what the user clicks on in the navigation section. I want it to look similar to the preferences panels found in programs like Firefox and Gimp, where you have a tree or list control on the left which contains a list of categories that you can select, and a content area on the right that updates depending on your selection. I thought I could use splitter windows for this, but when I do so I get an ugly resizing border in between the views. How is this normally done? Do they just create one view that has many overlapping controls, and simply show/hide the controls based on what categories the user clicks on? Or is there an easier way?
