If you are asking about GUI toolkits for SDL, then search for them on
the libsdl.org website. There are many of them. This link will show you
a bunch of them.
You will need to evaluate them and pick the one most suitable for your

On the other hand, you can just say that all pixels in the left 20
percent of the window are for the use you described and draw them any
way you want. 

Hope that helps.
