I would like to build a dialog bar with a listview. It is easy to do, but I need a docking resizeable dialog bar... and I cannot find any solution.
I use a CDialogBar type object.

To set the size of the dialog bar, you must derive a class from the CDialogBar and override the function CalcFixedLayout()

CSize CMyDialogBar::CalcFixedLayout(BOOL bStretch, BOOL bHorz)
{
  CSize size;
  size.cx = m_Width;   // fix the width of the dialog
  size.cy = m_Height;  // fix the height of the dialog
  return size;
}

Of course, you must capture the mouse events, track the dialog bar size and position and save this in the dialog bar.

My problem is just in the clause you begin with "Of course" :-)
I'm looking for some examples about tracking and resizing docking dialogbar. Sorry.

If you will look at the "advanced ui" setion here at Code Guru, I am certain that you will find answers, In particular, Kirk Stowell has the MFCUIX Library and demo code to do this.

I would recommend to you to go there and download the Source for MFCUIX.

Creating a Dialog bar with a listview is very easy. If you create a dialog bar with an initial size (CSize(200,220) and dock it to AFX_IDW_TOOLBAR_LEFT it will fill the client area on it's own. When it floats, it will be 200,220.
The Listview will have to be sized to the rect of the Dialog bar.

The rest is onWindowPosChanged, and other windoes messages. Look at Kirk's stuff.. Solid example.
