I have a number of CTreeViews and would like to add a CHeaderCtrl above them similar to Explorer (I have a splitter also). It would be nice to be able to add the control within the view so that it resizes with the splitter automatically. Is there an example availble? I'm using 4.2.

I am looking to do something similar...

I think a custom view may be required, dervied from CTreeView with an embedded CTabCtrl somehow or with a TabCtrl and CTreeCtrl.  

I have seen this type of functionality with docking windows.

Instead of using a tree view, use a form view and
attach a CTreeCtrl.  Also add the CHeaderCtrl .  You
can do this via the resource editor, but I recommened
doing it all in memory (create the control, call a
Create in the view's init function using 'this' as the CWnd).
To make sure the controls are resized properly, do something
similar to the following in the view's OnSize() function:

 if ( IsWindow( this->m_hWnd) && IsWindow( m_pTabCtrl->m_hWnd ) && IsWindow( m_pActiveTree->m_hWnd )  ) {
            VERIFY( m_pTabCtrl->SetWindowPos( &(this->wndBottom),
                l_cRect.left, l_cRect.top, l_cRect.Width(), l_cRect.Height(),
                SWP_SHOWWINDOW ) != 0 );

Do that for both controls.. note that OnSize() is called even
before the controls are attached so be careful to check your
pointers.

Thanks for the answer, I'll start investigating how easy it will be to convert the existing view over to a form view. I had a feeling it would require a form view.
