multi row CToolBarCtrl

I wanted to create a square block of buttons and thought
that CToolBarCtrl would be a good start, but I could not get SetRows to work. Eventually I found that creating the control with the CCS_NORESIZE is necessary, and that contary to the documentation TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE has no effect.

BOOL CDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
  TBBUTTON  v[] = {
    {0, 1000, TBSTATE_ENABLED, TBSTYLE_BUTTON, 0, NULL},  
    {0, 1001, TBSTATE_ENABLED, TBSTYLE_BUTTON,  0, NULL},
    {0, 1002, TBSTATE_ENABLED, TBSTYLE_BUTTON, 0, NULL},  
    {0, 1003, TBSTATE_ENABLED, TBSTYLE_BUTTON, 0, NULL}
    };

  CDialog::OnInitDialog();

  CToolBarCtrl* pctrl = new CToolBarCtrl;
  CRect rect(20,30,60,70);
  //This works
  //pctrl->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|CCS_NOPARENTALIGN|CCS_NODIVIDER|CCS_NORESIZE, rect, this, 100);
  //This doesn't
  pctrl->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|CCS_NOPARENTALIGN|CCS_NODIVIDER|TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE, rect, this, 100);
  pctrl->AddButtons(4, v);
  pctrl->SetRows(2, true, &rect);

     return TRUE;
  }

Can someone explain what is going on, or point me at documentation which would have saved me hours of grief?
Cheers Greg

    CToolBarCtrl* pctrl = new CToolBarCtrl;
     CRect rect(20,30,70,80);
     //This works
     //     pctrl->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|CCS_NOPARENTALIGN|CCS_NODIVIDER|CCS_NORESIZE, rect, this, 100);
     //This too, toolbar style TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE works only with CCS_NORESIZE else the toolbar is autoresized to so buttons can fit
     pctrl->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|CCS_NOPARENTALIGN|CCS_NODIVIDER|CCS_NORESIZE|TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE, rect, this, 100);
     pctrl->AddButtons(5,v);
     //you don't need to set rows anymore

>TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE works only with CCS_NORESIZE
Have you found this documented anywhere?
