Thank you for contacting us.
I am not sure I understand your scenario. When all panes are removed from a RadSplitContainer, this container has no items to show, so it disappears. But you could always dock the panes again to the previous location.
Could you please give us more details about your scenario, it would be very helpful. I will be glad to assist you further.
