Loading content to the panes

Configure pane size

You can specify the size to each pane using size property. It accepts pane values in percentage and pixel types.

In case of pane size is not declared, panes will equally share the sizes automatically.

For Horizontal orientation, panes will share the total width. For Vertical orientation, panes will share the total height.

        <e-splitter-pane size="50%" min="30%" content="<div class='content'> Top pane</div>"></e-splitter-pane>
        <e-splitter-pane size="50%" min="30%" content="<div class='content'> Bottom pane</div>"></e-splitter-pane>
    </e-splitter-panes>
</ejs-splitter>

Nested Splitter

Splitter provides support to render the nested pane to achieve the complex layouts. You can render the nested splitter using the <div> element provided for parent splitter.

Also you can render the nested splitter using direct child of the splitter pane. For this, nested splitter should have 100% width and height to match with the parent pane dimensions.
