NonFloating Toolbar

Hi,

VC++6.0 SP3 NT4 SP5

How is it possible to disable foating of
a toolbar?
I have tried commenting out
EnableDocking(CBRS_ALIGN_TOP);
But this causes many ASSERTS.

If anyone has any idea, I Would appreciate
any help.

Thanks

Delete from CMainFrame folowing three lines. No more. Just that.

m_wndToolBar.EnableDocking(CBRS_ALIGN_ANY);
EnableDocking(CBRS_ALIGN_ANY);
DockControlBar(&m_wndToolBar);

You should leave that line. It defines that the toolbar can only be docked to the top of the frame window.
You could try overriding the CFrameWnd::FloatControlBar, which is called whenever a control bar is going to be floated.

PIG,

thanks for your proposed answer, however this doesn't work I still receive several Assertions in the MFC code. I should have noted that I have another DialogBar that must maintain its floating ability. I'm sorry I forgot to mention that one important thing.

Sincerely,

OK newton1. :-)
Remove only
m_wndToolBar.EnableDocking(CBRS_ALIGN_ANY);
DockControlBar(&m_wndToolBar);
You can call DockControlBar for another DialogBar.
If and that can't to be help. I don't now.
