The toolbar needs to be created in the parent frame of the views (the CMDIChildWnd class).

To do this, derive a new class from CMDIChildWnd, modify your Document registration to use the new frame window. This is done in your CXxxxApp implementation file:

BOOL CMyApp::InitInstance()
{
    [............]

    CMultiDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
    pDocTemplate = new CMultiDocTemplate(
        IDR_MTYPE,
        RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyDoc),
        RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyFrame), // <<< Your custom frame window class here
        RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyView));
    AddDocTemplate(pDocTemplate);
   
    [................]

    return TRUE;
}


! Remember to include the new frame class's header file
You can now test that it works with the new frame.

--

To add the toolbar, add a CToolBar member variable to the new frame class (CMyFrame) (call it something like m_wndToolbar).

Add a handler for WM_CREATE in CMyFrame, a create the toolbar in this function:

int CMyFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
    if (CMDIChildWnd::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
        return -1;

    if (!m_wndToolbar.Create(this) ||
        !m_wndToolbar.LoadToolBar(IDR_MYTOOLBAR))
    {
        TRACE0("Failed to create toolbar\n");
        return -1;      // fail to create
    }
   
    return 0;
}
