Hi, I would like know how to program a dockable window with a control embedded inside it using Visual C++. For example this is something like the Workspace window inside the VIsual C++ 4.x/5.0 Interdrated Development Environment, which has a tree control to browse through the classes/project files/online help. This window acts like a docked/floating toolbar. Any help ???? Thanks.

MFC has CDockState which manages docking of control bars. When implementing similar bahaviour for common windows you can borrow some code from this class.
