Problem with padding between 2 vertical panels

I am using a DockPanel for laying out my page. I have a header at top, a footer at the bottom, and a HorizontalPanel in the middle. The HorizontalPanel consists of 2 VerticalPanels.

My problem is that there is spacing between the two VerticalPanels and I want them to touch. I can see that because I have a background color set for the two vertical panels and the colors don't bump up against each other. I've tried setSpacing(0) and that doesn't seem to make any difference.

Any ideas as to how I can get the two vertical panels to appear to touch each other?

Thank you.

The setSpacing(0) is on what container? HorizontalPanel?

Thank you, I solved my problem yesterday by using a DockPanel instead of a HorizontalPanel for the middle area of my page.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
