split a split view?

I have a few questions about ipad app layout and design.

a) I see from the tutorials that there is a way to split the views for an iPad.
however what if I wanted to have a app that looks like:

| A  | B     |
| C          |

So that the second row has a column span of the above two.

b) The split ‘menu’ does it have to be at the bottom of an app or can I position it at the top of the app?


You’ll have to do that manually I’m afraid. The IDE has no way to accomplish that.

It’s also not built into iOS by Apple. Not a Xojo limitation

I get that… and maybe doing so would violates Apple’s GUI design guidelines.

You can do it by embedding views with constraints. But it will all be manual, nothing is built in to do this natively.
