    In fact, I use the SplitContainer to have a nice layout on my form and I block the Minimum & Maximum size of a lot of SplitPanel.
    So I don't need to display the So I don't need to display the Splitter.

    On this link : http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/splitcontainer-overview.html We can see the splitter in bleu. How can I set it to invisible? Or to the same color than the background? 

    Thank you

    Hi Jean-Yves,

    To achieve this functionality you can change the colors of SplitContainerElement and SplitPanelElement to Transparent:
    SplitterElement splitterElement = splitContainer.SplitContainerElement.Children[0] as SplitterElement;
    splitterElement.BackgroundFill.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
    splitterElement.BackgroundFill.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid;
    splitContainer.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
    splitContainer.SplitPanelElement.Fill.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid;

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any additional questions. 

    All the best,
