Add a member function to the 'CMainFrame' class as shown below:

CToolBarCtrl& GetToolBarCtrl(){ return m_wndToolBar.GetToolBarCtrl();};

Use this in your view class by using the following(->include the 'MainFrm.h' file)

CMainFrame* pFrame = (CMainFrame*)AfxGetMainWnd();
CToolBarCtrl* pCtrl = pFrame->GetToolBarCtrl();

No you can do what ever you want to do with the toolbar by using the functions like 'CheckButton', 'PressButton', 'EnableButton' etc...

Hello, I've tried what you proposed...

but there is one error:

error C2679: binary '=' : no operator defined which takes a right-hand operand of type 'class CToolBarCtrl' (or there is no acceptable conversion)

I don't know how to solve that...

Sorry, I have typed it wrong

'CTollBarCtrl&' instead of 'CToolBarCtrl*'

Hai techpage,

Here is another simple method.

CToolBar * pToolBar = (CToolBar* ) AfxGetMainWnd()->GetDescendantWindow(AFX_IDW_TOOLBAR);
