    I set up a simple example of the issue I'm seeing, using one of the free demos online.  The mark-up for the splitter looks like this.

    <telerik:RadSplitter id="RadSplitter1" runat="server" height="200" width="500">
                    <telerik:RadPane id="RadPane1" runat="server">Left Pane -
                        set to <b>free</b> size </telerik:RadPane>
                    <telerik:RadSplitBar id="RadSplitbar1" runat="server"></telerik:RadSplitBar>
                    <telerik:RadPane id="RadPane2" runat="server">Middle Pane - set to <b>free</b> size </telerik:RadPane>
                    <telerik:RadSplitBar id="RadSplitbar2" runat="server"></telerik:RadSplitBar>
                    <telerik:RadPane id="Radpane3" runat="server">End Pane - set to <b>free</b> size

    While in run-time the splitter control and all panes display correctly, but in DesignMode the panes are displayed on top of each other, instead of side by side.

    Is there any way to correct the look of the panes in DesignMode?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Thomas,

    I am not quite sure what you mean by "on top of each other" - do you mean that the RadPanes look like nested one in another? If it is so, please open a new support ticket and send us more information about this - test project, information about your VS.NET version, screenshots, etc.

    The correct look of the RadPanes in design mode is the one I got when I tested your code - you can find it in the attached .jpeg file. This appearance is the one which we found for most suitable after a research and we believe that it will suite you, too.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    With RadSplitter, What You See IS NOT What You Get.
    Why don't RadSplitter display extractly in Design Mode as in Run time?

    We are aware that the view of some of our controls in Design in VS is not the same as in the browser window and we have the task to improve this on our TODO list. Unfortunately, for the time being, I cannot give you a precise estimate when we will improve the design of the RadSplitter control.

    Still no progress in this area? I'm trying with the code example that you provide for the full page splitter scenario (see link). In the design mode it looks very messy as the RadPane refuse to scale to 100% of the page. It seems I can't set Width to % but only pixels in VS2010.

    Another design mode issue is with the Toolbar. I just added one DropDown button with Text aligned rigth to the icon. Again, looks great in Run time, but in Design mode it puts the text below the image.

    Hi Tom,

    RadSplitter and its child controls still do not offer full support in DesignTime. This improvement was postponed in favour of tasks of higher importance. I will contact the developers and will try to increase its priority.
