I have added a CToolBarCtrl to a dialog box.
How do I notify the dialog when a button has
been pressed on the CToolBarCtrl?

Thanks.

When a button is pressed the toolbar control generates a WM_COMMAND message with ID set to the ID of the pressed button. You can handle the WM_COMMAND messages in your dialog (which appears to be the parrent of the toolbar control). By the way it is preferable if you use CDialogBar instead of CToolBarCtrl in MFC dialogs.
