Hi Todd.
Cocoa# is a set of .NET assemblies to provide glue to the Carbon  
controls of MacOS X.

MonoDevelop is simply an IDE to build executables using these  
assemblies.  just like any other IDE.
Splitters, i assume your talking about panel splitters. They are  
supported by MacOS X, As well as Tree Views.

You can use Cocoa# in either MonoDevelop or using some Xcode plugin,  
though i'm not aware of any.

In either-case--and if i remember correctly--the GUI for the  
application is built within Apple Xcode's Interface Builder then  
connected to using Cocoa# code in .NET

This all depends on where all of your code lies--if you have more  
ObjC code them .NET there are other "bridging" solutions--and has  
very little relevance to this forum. If you would like to discuss  
this further you can contact me either by email or contact the Cocoa#  
mailing list.

On a personal note, i need to remember to fix my Email Filters so i  
catch these messages sooner and re-subscribe to the Cocoa# List.
