For a portion of my user interface, I would like to be able to organize controls into three separate vertical containers. The 3 containers would be separated by move-able splitters, and moving the splitters would change the size of the containers. Also, each of the vertical containers needs to be collapsible, but no more than 2 should be collapsed at any give time.

Here is a picture that illustrates my desired layout:

Can anyone suggest what controls I could use to accomplish this layout and functionality?

Thank you,

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

This reported requirement can be achieved by using SplitContainerAdv control. Please make use of the sample and video for your reference.
