Just divide one of the halves into two - then you have 3 sections: :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include "GUIFrame.au3"

$hGUI = GUICreate("GUI_Frame 3 Sections", 600, 500, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))

; Create a 1st level frame
$iFrame_A = _GUIFrame_Create($hGUI)
_GUIFrame_SetSepPos($iFrame_A, 400)
GUISetBkColor(0xFF0000, _GUIFrame_GetHandle($iFrame_A, 2))

; Create a 2nd level frame
$iFrame_B = _GUIFrame_Create(_GUIFrame_GetHandle($iFrame_A, 1))
GUISetBkColor(0x0000FF, _GUIFrame_GetHandle($iFrame_B, 1))

; Set resizing flag for all created frames

; Register the $WM_SIZE handler to permit resizing

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ; The UDF does all the tidying up as you exit

Hi, Sorry for bump posting but I had a really crazy coincidence :blink:... Long story short, I made an UDF with the exact same name, file name and UDF naming scheme of _GUIFrame_*! I swear that I did not copy the idea of the name from this UDF.

My GUIFrame UDF has a different goal that this one though, I wanted to create a GUI framework which can take care of stuff "out of the box". I was planning to make most of the parameters which define the size and position of a control optional by using a "layout" engine thing... crazy idea right? :P. That is when I found this UDF, I was looking for M23's excellent StringSize UDF which can give me the size of the rectangle required for a given piece of text... I was surprised to see my UDF's name listed in @Melba23's signature :shocked:

My UDF is just a crazy idea at this stage and the script has a lot of room for improvement, you can find it at GitHub where I published it under an open source licence: https://github.com/AutoIt4Life/GUIFrame

Time to think of a new name for the UDF!
