GtkPaned is the base class for widgets with two panes, arranged either
horizontally (GtkHPaned) or vertically (GtkVPaned). Child widgets are
added to the panes of the widget with gtk_paned_pack1() and
gtk_paned_pack2(). The division between the two children is set by default
from the size requests of the children, but it can be adjusted by the
A paned widget draws a separator between the two child widgets and a
small handle that the user can drag to adjust the division. It does not
draw any relief around the children or around the separator. (The space
in which the separator is called the gutter.) Often, it is useful to put
each child inside a GtkFrame with the shadow type set to GTK_SHADOW_IN
so that the gutter appears as a ridge. No separator is drawn if one of
the children is missing.
Each child has two options that can be set, resize and shrink. If
expand or shrink along with the paned widget. If shrink is true, then
that child can be made smaller than its requisition by the user.
Setting shrink to FALSE allows the application to set a minimum size.
If resize is false for both children, then this is treated as if
The application can set the position of the slider as if it were set
by the user, by calling gtk_paned_set_position().

Creating a paned widget with minimum sizes.

GtkWidget *hpaned = gtk_paned_new (GTK_ORIENTATION_HORIZONTAL);
GtkWidget *frame1 = gtk_frame_new (NULL);
GtkWidget *frame2 = gtk_frame_new (NULL);
gtk_frame_set_shadow_type (GTK_FRAME (frame1), GTK_SHADOW_IN);
gtk_frame_set_shadow_type (GTK_FRAME (frame2), GTK_SHADOW_IN);
gtk_widget_set_size_request (hpaned, 200, -1);
gtk_paned_pack1 (GTK_PANED (hpaned), frame1, TRUE, FALSE);
gtk_widget_set_size_request (frame1, 50, -1);
gtk_paned_pack2 (GTK_PANED (hpaned), frame2, FALSE, FALSE);
gtk_widget_set_size_request (frame2, 50, -1);
