Creating new class..

i know you can add new classes by going to the class wizard and filling in the dialog box.. is there a way to derive from a class if the class isn't listed in that dialog box? i mean, i know i can do it by hand, but then the class isn't listed in class wizard..

specifically, i want to derive a class from CodeGuru's CCtrolBarEx found in the mfcxlib.. it just seems like a pain to have to over ride all the virtual functions by hand..

Go to menu item "Insert" submenu "Class....", then move the list box entry from "MFC class" to "Generic Class".  Now you can type a name for your new class and enter anything you want in the "Derived from" list box.  You will have to manually add the include file to point to the h file of the class you're deriving from.  Sorry it won't know about the virtual functions from your parent class though.
