    I am trying to design a page that has a Header pane , a side menu pane , and a contents pane, using radSplitter.
    See the folowing image to illustrate the desired result: Desired result

    My problem is that the width\height of the contents pane exceeds the page limits, and are causing scroll bars to appear. Here is how it looks like:  Result
    (I have another minor question.. The oriantation peroperty behaves strange.. to get vertical oriantation I need to set it to Horizontal, and vice versa. See my code below)

    I have simplified the code the the following:
    1 <%@ Page language="C#"%>   
    2 <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI, Version=2009.1.311.35, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %> 
    3 <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" ""> 
    4 <html xmlns="">  
    5 <head runat="server">  
    6 <title>test</title>     
    7 <style type="text/css">  
    8     html,body,form{  
    9     height:100%;  
    10     width:100%;  
    11 }  
    12 </style> 
    13 </head> 
    14 <body> 
    15     <form id="form1" runat="server">  
    16         <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" /> 
    17         <telerik:radSplitter runat="server" ID="mainSplitter" FullScreenMode="true" Orientation="Horizontal" BorderSize="0">  
    18         <telerik:RadPane runat="server" ID="header" Height="120px">  
    19             header  
    20         </telerik:RadPane> 
    21         <telerik:RadPane runat="server" ID="content">  
    22             <telerik:RadSplitter Orientation="Vertical" runat="server" ID="InternalSplitter">  
    23                 <telerik:RadPane ID="ContentPane" runat="server">  
    24                     content  
    25                 </telerik:RadPane> 
    26                 <telerik:RadPane ID="SidePane" runat="server">  
    27                     side  
    28                 </telerik:RadPane> 
    29             </telerik:RadSplitter> 
    30         </telerik:RadPane> 
    31         </telerik:RadSplitter> 
    32     </form> 
    33 </body> 
    34 </html> 

    As you can see the scrollbars are there for no reason and they adjust themselves if I resize the browser window. They even appear in full screen mode.

    What can I do about them?
    Also, please address the orientation problem I have mentioned.

    Hi Elad,

    When you nest a RadSplitter in a RadPane, you should set Scrolling=None to the parent RadPane because otherwise you will get unneccessary scrollbars - if any scrollbars are needed, the nested splitter will generate them.

    I also recommend to remove the FullScreenMode property because it is obsolete and instead of that to set Width and Height to 100% for the splitter and also modify your CSS in manner to remove width 100% and set margin and padding 0. This being said, you should modify your code in the following manner:

    <html xmlns="">  
        <style type="text/css">     
         margin: 0;  
        <form id="form1" runat="server">  
            <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" /> 
            <telerik:RadSplitter runat="server" ID="mainSplitter" Width="100%" Height="100%" 
                Orientation="Horizontal" BorderSize="0">  
                <telerik:RadPane runat="server" ID="header" Height="120px">  
                <telerik:RadPane runat="server" ID="content" Scrolling="None">  
                    <telerik:RadSplitter Orientation="Vertical" runat="server" ID="InternalSplitter">  
                        <telerik:RadPane ID="ContentPane" runat="server">  
                        <telerik:RadPane ID="SidePane" runat="server">  

    After I applied the above explained modifications, the result was the one you require.

    Hi Svetlina, Thank you for your help.
    I have tried what you suggested, and it indeed hide the scrollbars.
    But still the contents of the pane exceeds it's size, only this time there are no scrollars.
    Now I have some 2px of content to the left that is hidden, and I can't scroll there. I know this because if I select-drag my mouse to that hidden area, it causes the page to scroll there, and I can see the hidden content.

    In other words, your solution made the scrollbars hidden, but didn't eliminate the need for scrollbars.

    Can you please provide a solution?

    Same issue.   The problem is if you set overflow style using common css, this breaks pages that do not have the splitter but share same master page/css.
