Problem using CWnd::RepositionBars()-method

I am trying to use a CToolBar in a dialog based app. I followed the hints I found on the MSDN library, but the result is quite strange.
I used the following code in the dialogs OnInitDialog-method:
...
if (!m_toolBar.Create(this) ||
      !m_toolBar.LoadToolBar(IDR_TOOLBAR))
    return -1;

m_toolBar.SetBarStyle(m_toolBar.GetBarStyle()     | CBRS_TOOLTIPS | CBRS_FLYBY | CBRS_SIZE_DYNAMIC);

  CRect rcClientStart;
  CRect rcClientNow;
  GetClientRect(rcClientStart);
  /* the following line is the problem !! */
  RepositionBars(AFX_IDW_CONTROLBAR_FIRST,
                 AFX_IDW_CONTROLBAR_LAST,
                 reposQuery, 0, rcClientNow);

  CPoint ptOffset(rcClientStart.left - rcClientNow.left,
                  rcClientStart.top - rcClientNow.top);
  ptOffset.y += ::GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYMENU);
  CRect rcChild;
  CWnd* pwndChild = GetWindow(GW_CHILD);
  while (pwndChild)
  {
    pwndChild->GetWindowRect(rcChild);
    rcChild.OffsetRect(ptOffset);
    pwndChild->MoveWindow(rcChild, FALSE);
    pwndChild = pwndChild->GetNextWindow();
  }

  CRect rcWindow;
  GetWindowRect(rcWindow);
  rcWindow.right += rcClientStart.Width() - rcClientNow.Width();
  rcWindow.bottom += rcClientStart.Height() - rcClientNow.Height();
  MoveWindow(rcWindow, FALSE);

  RepositionBars(AFX_IDW_CONTROLBAR_FIRST,
                 AFX_IDW_CONTROLBAR_LAST,
                 0);

The result is that the window gets very very big and none of the other controls on the dialog is displayed. Only the toolbar appears. When I used the debugger to figure out the problem I saw that the CWnd::RepositionBars()-method returns very strange values in the CRect object (rcClientNow).
They were -85726373 to 87637362 or something like that. Do you know what I made wrong?

Regards

Your rcClientNow variable is not initialized.

The values you see are for an unitilialized CRect. Check the code for yourself.

I changed initialization of the CRect objects as follows:
  CRect rcClientStart(0,0,0,0);
  CRect rcClientNow(0,0,0,0);

The result is, that I now can see the other controls in the dialog but the window is still much too big. And the debugger shows that the CRect rcClientNow contains 0,0,0,0. But if I look into the documentation for RepositionBars, it tells me that in the parameter lpRectParam the new size of the client area should be stored.

You're missing one argument I think, here's the doc I have for repositionbars:

void RepositionBars( UINT nIDFirst, UINT nIDLast, UINT nIDLeftOver, UINT nFlag = CWnd::reposDefault, LPRECT lpRectParam = NULL, LPCRECT lpRectClient = NULL, BOOL bStretch = TRUE );


nIDLeftOver is the argument you're missing.

Your code looks like nIDLeftOver will be reposQuery, that might be the mistake.

Here's my answer again. Try REFRESH on your browser. If you click on the link in your mail reader it won't always reload the page. But why am I writing this? If you can read it you've surely done it!
