Well, your message-handler blocks don't *do* anything (other than evaluate
the value of a constant like FX4Splitter::ID_EXPAND_TOPLEFT).

I think you want to modify them to call a function on the splitter, for example:

      "Expand dirlist",
      fatBot).connect(SEL_COMMAND) {
        four_splitter.expanded = FX4Splitter::ExpandTopLeft

Hope this helps,
