create your own CToolBar derive class and add this code to OnInitDialog():
//IDR_MY_TOOLBAR-> your resource toolbar ID
//u associate your toolbar with the resource ID

     cMyToolBar.Create(this);
     cMyToolBar.LoadToolBar(IDR_MY_TOOLBAR);
     cMyToolBar.ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
     cMyToolBar.SetBarStyle(CBRS_ALIGN_TOP | CBRS_BORDER_TOP | CBRS_TOOLTIPS | CBRS_FLYBY);
     RepositionBars(AFX_IDW_CONTROLBAR_FIRST, AFX_IDW_CONTROLBAR_LAST, 0);


in your toolbar class add this function:
LRESULT OnIdleUpdateCmdUI(WPARAM wp, LPARAM lp);


LRESULT CMyToolBar::OnIdleUpdateCmdUI(WPARAM wp, LPARAM lp)
{
   if (IsWindowVisible()) {
       CFrameWnd* pParent = (CFrameWnd*)GetParent();
       if(pParent)
           OnUpdateCmdUI(pParent, (BOOL)wp);
   }
   return 0L;
}

this function is passing the UPDATE_COMMAND_UI to the dialog in order to handle the toolbar's buttons
