    In my development, I've run into situations whenin certain panes are collapsed and their containing splitters/panes get resized. When these panes get expanded again, their contents remain the same size as before they had been collapsed even though the pane itself has grown in size.

    For a clearer explanation of the issue, I've whipped up a little example using three levels of nested panes/splitters. If someone could take a look at it and let me know if there's some way I can prevent this from happening, I'd appreciate it.

    Hi Nick,

    I tested your sample code and was able to reproduce the problem. First I strongly recommend you to set all your splitters' sizes at least in percentages because the sizes calculation of nested splitters at runtime is a very complicated process. What I can suggest to improve the resizing behavior is:

    1. Implement a javascript function which will force resizing of nested splitters and execute it in the load event of your main splitter.
    2. We recently found a problem with the VisibleDuringInit property when used with nested RadSplitters. The problem that I refer to is the following - the nested RadSplitter initializes first and becomes visible. After that, the parent RadSplitter calculates its size (at this point it is not visible) and resizes its child splitter (at this point it is visible). We have prepared a workaround that you can use for the time being until we are able to fix the problem. 

    You can find your project with these modifications applied in the attached archive file.

    I could really use some help getting the following working with nested splitters across MasterPages/ContentPage:

    I have a MasterPage with a FullScreen Horizontal Splitter with 2 panes.
    In my Content Page (in the "bodyContent" ContentPlaceHolder) contains a 2-pane horizontal splitter where the bottom pane contains a RadGrid that I want to be 100% height and width. 

    Currently the pane with the grid overflows the sides of the browser which I had thought the MasterPage's Splitter was enforcing the boundaries for.

    MASTERPAGE

    Hello Lyle Groome,

    I already answered your support ticket and for your convenience I place the answer below:

    Please, accept our sencere apologies for the delay.
    To your questions:

    1. By default, if you don't explicitely set the nested RadSplitter's ResizeWithParentPane property to false, it will stay with its default value, which is true. This being said, the nested RadSplitter resizes itself in order to fit its parent RadPane. In your case, you have applied a custom css class (masterContentPane) which has padding 10 px and this padding causes the nested RadSplitter to exceed the boundaries of the parent pane and scrollbars occur. Therefore you should remove the padding from the css class.
    2. This is not related to the RadPanelBar, its a general issue - your expression does not get evaluated. You can test the same expression with a standard asp label and you will get the same result - an empty string. The correct approach is the following one:

          <telerik:RadPanelItem Text="RadMenu" NavigateUrl="NotCurrentlyAvailable.aspx" Target="<%# contentPane.ClientID%>"> 


    We hope that our suggestion would be helpful.
