In the main mainframe:
1) Create Toolbar (toolbar.Create and then toolbar.LoadToolBar)
2)optional set specifc style (toolbar.SetBarStyle)
3) mainfram function: EnableDocking()
4) dock toolbar (toolbar.EnableDocking)
5) mainframe function: DockControlBar(&toolbar)

I think that's it :).

OK. I didnt' see Dialog :).
Use the class CDialogBar instead of CToolbar/CDialog.
Description is the same as above exept LoadToolBar.
