Whats the best way to create a dialog bar and attach it to code.  I can create a DialogBar in the resource editor by using the Insert...|DialogBar option.

But when I use ClassWizard to create a new module, I cna't select DialogBar as the base class.

How should I go about it?

If wizard doesn't know about the dialog bar, you just do it manually, I guess. If you want to override the behavior, override a class from CDialogBar, and if not, just call CDialogBar's Create fxn in your parnt frame's OnCreate(), passing the ID of the dialog bar resource to the create fxn...

      if (!m_dialogBar.Create(this, IDD_MyDialogBar, CBRS_TOP | CBRS_TOOLTIPS | CBRS_FLYBY |CBRS_HIDE_INPLACE, ID_TOOLS_DIALOGBAR ))
      {
            TRACE0("Failed to create dialog bar m_dialogBar \n");
            return -1;            // fail to create
      }

And you handle the messages in the frame.

I am creating a DialogBar manually, in the way you have described, but I still have one problem:

In the resource editor, I added an edit box to the DialogBar.

Now, I want to associate a CEdit control with the edit box.  Normally, I would go to the wizard and add a variable.  But since the wizard doesn't know about the DialogBar class, I can't do that.

What is the manual alternative?

Thanks.
