Creating Toolbar Wrapper Class

I was reading a great article on the MSDN cd's about the new toolbar. And I decided to
create my own wrapper class around it.

The interface to this CWnd derived class would be something like

Create
SetImageList
SetDisabledImageList
SetHotImageList
AddButton
DelButton
SetButton
.
.


First of all, the only way I succeeded in creating a toolbar with buttons, was using the
api(?):

      CreateToolbarEx

Which takes bitmap/buttons as argument - not as flexible as I would like.


So my question is this:

Having a handle to a toolbar, created with CWnd()->Create(...), is it possible to add
buttons dynamically?
How is this done? What sort of initializing should be done??? A small piece of code would be
great, but not essential...

Why are you taking all this trouble ?

CToolBarCtrl is the MFC wrapper for the new Win32 Toolbar. It covers all the things you would need to create a toolbar. You can derive your wrapper class from the CToolBarCtrl if you want something more. In the CToolbarCtrl there is a method called AddButtons() which allows you to add buttons dynamically.
