Hi,

I am using a CControlBar to implement a VS6 like dockable/floating tool palette. On the other hand, I would like to disalbe the floating part so that it only docks.

Does anybody have an answer?

Cheers
Yida

Call CControlBar's EnableDocking function.

GOOD LUCK

Hi Roshan,

Thanks for getting back to me. Can you be more specific about when to call EnableDocking and with what params? It seems to me that EnableDocking only enables the CControlBar to be docked at a specific side of the frame window.

The user experience is that: I would like user to be able to dock the control bar to any side of the window. But I don't allow them to make the control bar float.

Thanks
Yida

When you create you toolbar pay attention to Create and SetBarStyle functions.

CToolBar::Create
parameter dwStyle must not have the flag CBRS_FLOATING.

BarStyle must not have the style CBRS_FLOAT_MULTI but CBRS_ALIGN_ANY.

dwOldStyle = ... GetBarStyle() & (~CBRS_FLOAT_MULTI);
...SetBarStyle( dwOldStyle | CBRS_ALIGN_ANY);

To dock toolbars to a frame window, the frame window (or destination) must be enabled to allow docking. This is done using the CFrameWnd::EnableDocking(CBRS_ALIGN_ANY)

After you have prepared the destination for docking, you must prepare the toolbar (or source) in a similar fashion. Call CControlBar::EnableDocking(CBRS_ALIGN_ANY) for each toolbar you want to dock.
