I need help writing an SDI app with a single CView that has a docking (CDialogBar) dialog box that can be shown or hidden. When the dialog box is shown I want the user to be able to dock it. I would like to toggle the docking dialog box via menu or toolbar button.

I need some very simple step by step instructions on how to add this feature to my existing project or working examples I can incorporate please.

I looked at that example and do not like the fact you can't reposition or undock the dialog box by dragging it.
