'"True'" Dynamic Splitter Bar

If you want to implement splitter window in your MFC based application that redraws its panes dynamically (like Microsoft Windows Explorer does when you have IE4.0 installed) then you can use my simple class CDynSplitterWnd. Dragging CDynSplitterWnd splitter bar does not show a hatched line, instead it immediately redraws itself at a new position as well as forces all its panes to redraw themselves.

To implement CDynSplitterWnd window simply:

1. Change declaration of your splitter window instances to be instances of the CDynSplitterWnd class rather than CSplitterWnd class.

2. Or derive your own CSplitterWnd based classes (if you have them) from CDynSplitterWnd instead, and don't forget about BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CYourSplitterWnd, CDynSplitterWnd) macro.

CDynSplitterWnd works best for the "1column 2 rows static splitter" situation. If you have MFC dynamic splitters create them with SIZE sizeMin parameter in CSplitterWnd ::Create(...) function set to CSize(1,1) or CSize(0,0).
