Why is the default Rebar always disabled

I created an Application using AppWizard (in VC++6) using "Internet Explorer Rebars". Everything works fine.
Then, I wanted to add a button to the IDR_MAINFRAME resource. This dialog resource is connected to a CDialogBar object... when I compile and run the project, however, the button is displayed as disabled. At no part in the program I set the style disabled, though. Any suggestions?

The button is disabled because there is no control associated with that resource. Use the classwizard and assign that button resource to a CButton .. and then add the BN_CLICKED and UPDATE_COMMAND_UI Message handlers for it. Then you are honme free....
