    Hi Truong,

    The RadSplitter does not have such built-in functionality. The main problem is that a lot of the features of the splitter and panes require that the RadPanes have size in pixels. For example, features that require this are MinWidth, MaxWidth, MinHeight, MaxHeight, Scrolling, etc. In case you simply need to display two cells in a row and do not intend to use any of the functionality that the RadSplitter offers, you can simply replace the splitter with a TABLE element. That way, you will reduce the client objects that are creates on your page with three (one for the RadSplitter and two for the two RadPanes).

    However, in case you prefer to use the RadSplitter control even in case you do not intend to use the functionality it offers, you can use the following approach:

    <head runat="server">  
        <style type="text/css">  
                height: auto !important;  
        <form id="form1" runat="server">  
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">  
        <telerik:RadSplitter ID="RadSplitter1" runat="server" CssClass="AutoHeight">  
            <telerik:RadPane ID="RadPane1" runat="server" CssClass="AutoHeight" BackColor="Aqua"  
                TreeView pane  
            <telerik:RadSplitBar ID="RadSplitBar1" runat="server" />  
            <telerik:RadPane ID="RadPane2" runat="server" CssClass="AutoHeight" BackColor="Red"  
                Grid pane

    I try to set the main pane height to be auto so when user using different IE they can see the whole page. It look ok on IE7 if i set to 600px, but when i open the page in IE8, the page will overlap and part of the menu will be hidden from view.

    Hi Dylan,

    I am no quite sure whether I understand the specific scenario correctly and what exactly do you mean with "I try to set the main pane height to be auto":
    • If you want the main pane to be resized depending on its content, you can see how that can be done in this help article: Initially Resize the RadSplitter according to its content
    • If you want to make the Splitter occupy 100% of the current viewport, you will need to configure also the size of all its parents, up to a parent with a fixed size. In your scenario you have to:
      - remove the height property of the MainPane
      - set the height of UpdatePanel1:
      <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" style="height:100%;">
      - add the following CSS styles to the html, body, form elements, which are also parents for the Splitter:
      html, body, form
          height: 100%;
          padding: 0;
          margin: 0;
          overflow: hidden;

    Hope this helps.
