A CView as a child of CMDIChildWnd

I have a MDI child and CView, but in CMDIChild I have some toolbars as well. How can I do this: my CView shouldn't take all the client area (except toolbars) in CMDIChildWnd, and between CView and CMDIChild should be left 5 pixels in each side for example. Is it can be done by overloading some functions in CMDIChild or CView?
I tried this:
void CContainerView::OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy)
{
      CView::OnSize(nType, cx-10, cy-10);
      CRect rct;
      GetParent()->GetClientRect(&rct);
      MoveWindow(5,5,rct.right-10,rct.bottom-10);
}
But it isn't take in account toolbars.
Important: toolbars are OLE server toolbars created by another application, and I don't know how many space they use.

You may help, if just answer, how to change client rect of window dynamically, so that GetClientRect return this rect.

Hi!
Try CMdiChildWnd::RecalcLayout(BOOL bNotify)

for example:
CMyMDIChildWnd::OnSize(...)
{
CMDIChildWnd::OnSize();
RecalcLayout(FALSE);
}

No, my example doesn't work 'cause GetParent()->GetClientRect(&rct); returns all the client rect, uncluding toolbars. I solved this problem by myself this way:

void CMyView::CalcWindowRect(LPRECT lpClientRect, UINT nAdjustType)
{
      CView::CalcWindowRect(lpClientRect, nAdjustType);

            lpClientRect->right-=5;
            lpClientRect->bottom-=5;
            lpClientRect->top+=5;
            lpClientRect->left+=5;
}

But I can give you some pts, 'cause I can't get them back;))

hmm
In generaly MFC archeticture assume that child window must be resized by parent, not itself, so did you try my reccomendation (and remove CContainerView::OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy) )?

But that one workes pretty fine. And from within CMyMDIChildWnd::OnSize() it's possible too, but there will be more code (need to get size of CView, then substract some pixels from this size, and call MoveWindow to set new size, and only after this call RecalcLayout to arrange toolbars and CView).

Hi migel. You were right:)). My method worked fine, when CView was a child of CMDIChild, but when I inserted it into CSplitterWnd, I didn't get any results. I tried some methods, but only one worked fine. Guess what?:))) I had to reimplement CSplitterWnd::RecalcLayout() as follows:
void CViewExSplitWnd::RecalcLayout()
{
      CSplitterWnd::RecalcLayout();
         CFrameWnd *pFrame=GetParentFrame();
         if(!pFrame)
               return;

         CView *pView=pFrame->GetActiveView();
         if(!pView)
               return;

         if(((CChildFrame *)pFrame)->m_bColoredFrame)
         {
               RECT rct;
               pView->GetWindowRect(&rct);
               pView->GetParent()->ScreenToClient(&rct);
               pView->MoveWindow(rct.left+ALERT_BORDER_SIZE,rct.top+ALERT_BORDER_SIZE,
                     rct.right-rct.left-2*ALERT_BORDER_SIZE,rct.bottom-rct.top-2*ALERT_BORDER_SIZE);
               pFrame->RedrawWindow();
         }
}

Generally you were right, parent must resize it's children. So, I'll accept your answer.
