I can't seem to figure out how to set a control (in my case a tree control) as the body of a splitter pane. I tried creating the parent splitter and then passing that as the parent in the create method of my control, but it didn't work.

The CSplitterWnd only supports Views inside its panes.

Inside your OnCreateClient method you use CreateView to create a CTreeView inside a specific pane.

Sample from MSDN:

// this function creates the panes for a static splitter window
BOOL CChildFrame::OnCreateClient( LPCREATESTRUCT lpcs,
CCreateContext* pContext)

BOOL bCreateSpltr = m_wndSplitter.CreateStatic( this, 2, 1);
// COneView and CAnotherView are user-defined views derived from CMDIView
m_wndSplitter.CreateView(0,0,RUNTIME_CLASS(CTreeView), CSize(0,0),
m_wndSplitter.CreateView(1,0,RUNTIME_CLASS(CEditView), CSize(0,0),

return (bCreateSpltr);
