Hi!
CControlBar is base class so it doesn`t draw anything - it just belongs on derived classe for painting.
Do you want insert bacground image into the toolbar or Dialogbar?

You need to derive a class from CControlBar, lets call it CMyControlBar and override its CMyControlBar::OnEraseBkgnd( CDC* pDC )-function. Perform your desired drawing in this function and return TRUE.

class CMyControlBar : public CControlBar {
public:
    afx_msg BOOL OnEraseBkgnd( CDC* pDC );
};

In your existing code replace CControlBar with this CMyControlBar-class after you implemented the drawing in OnEraseBkgnd. It's probably easier to use the class wizard to derive your class - but it can also be done manually. To get to your goal more easily break down your problem into subproblems: The first one is to actually be able to paint the background yourself. Don't worry about the image now; just call some simple drawing functions to see if it's working, some MoveTo's/LineTo's or FillSolidRect's are all you need to do. When that's working go on to the next task. Be warned though, displaying bitmaps holds more surprises than anyone would like to remember.
