    hi, so I would like to know if I can customize the look of the splitter bar. For some users, less savvy users, it is not completely obvious what a splitter bar does.

    A good example is here:

    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/figures/uiswing/components/SplitPaneDemo2.png

    Is it possible to add dots, arrows, a custom image, or override the draw to do something custom?

    This is one of 4 critical controls that I need from your package if it can meet my needs.

    Perhaps this part of forum is a bit slow? I hope that my English has been adequate. If my wording has not been clear please ask me to explain better. And also if this question is not a possible thing then please tell and I will know.

    Hello Mike,

    RadControls for Winforms does not provide separate implementation of SplitterBar control. Please give us a more detailed information about the used UI control and technology in your application. This will allow me to provide you with adequate and helpful assistance.

    Thank you for your time and cooperation. I am looking forward to your reply.

    Excuse me. I thought that would be obvious since I am posting in the RadSplitContainer place. I am using the SplitContainer. The same thing I need to solve also for splitters in RadDock.

    Is this possible to customize draw or use image for the splitter on these controls?

    Hi Mike,

    You can use the Paint event handler in the context of SplitContainer to draw over Splitters. You can view the solution in
    this Stackoverflow thread.

    To customize the appearance of the SplitterElement in RadDock you can use the our 
    Visual Style Builder to build a custom theme. Please view the attached screenshot for details.

    I hope this helps.
