Customize Toolbar Dialog

I am trying to get the Customize Toolbar dialog available in MFC to work. I have done the following:

1. Added the CCS_ADJUSTABLE style.

int CMyToolBar::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
      if (CToolBar::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
            return -1;
      ModifyStyle(0, CCS_ADJUSTABLE);
            return 0;
}

2. I am trying to pop up the dialog by doing the following:

  m_wndToolBar.GetToolBarCtrl().Customize();

I see the dialog flashing, and then it disappears.

Can anyone tell me what I am missing? I know there is a lot more work I need to do to make the dialog functional. At this stage, I am only trying to display it.


Thanks!

Before you get an answer, why don't you delete this and put it in the MFC section?

No need to do that psdavis :-)

To support customization, your toolbar's parent window must handle the customization notification messages as described in CToolBarCtrl: Handling Customization Notifications.

For some full sample go to
http://www.codeguru.com
Click "Toolbar" on the left hand side
You will find several samples, 4 of which are specifically about toolbar customization
