The Horizontal Divider control Horizontal And Vertical Dividers

Controls are generally laid out on the screen without any visible boundary between them. Whilst this is usually what you want, sometimes it would be nice to be able to divide up the screen into logical areas. The two divider controls allow you to do that. They work the same way, except that one provides a horizontal divider, and the other provides a vertical divider.

There are only two specific properties for these controls, the width or height of the divider, and the colour. Here you can see a blue one-pixel high horizontal between the Surname and Email controls, and part of a green three-pixel wide vertical divider to the left of them.
