Cdialogbar problem.

I already have a standard Ctoolbar on my sdi window that ocupies half of the toolbar space, Now I want another Cdialogbar( because i want a few Buttons, and a custom Control on it) to be placed exactly in the unused tool bar arearea, but the dialogbar goes Below the toolbar, not next to it. also it is not dockable, though i did enabledocking(CBRS_ALIGN_ANY).Also the two buttons are disabled. I dont know why?
could any body help me get the dialog bar next to the toolbar

To align the dialogbar next to tool bar, you need to calculate the rectangle(left,right,top,bottom - left = right of tool bar + 2 pixels) of dialog bar and set the position. Use function like getclientrect of the CToolbar.

The buttons disabled is because of wrong IDs or you do not have ON_COMMAND for the buttons. If still does not work, you have to do idel time enablingg for these buttons.
