I am working with the document view architecture's tool bars. How can I disable (gray-out) all the buttons in a tool bar? The tool bar is a CToolBar MFC object.

Thanks.

Change the code in your mainframe.cpp as follow
//WS_DISABLED will disable your toolbar

if (!m_wndToolBar.CreateEx(this, TBSTYLE_FLAT, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE |WS_DISABLED| CBRS_TOP
            | CBRS_GRIPPER | CBRS_TOOLTIPS | CBRS_FLYBY | CBRS_SIZE_DYNAMIC) ||
            !m_wndToolBar.LoadToolBar(IDR_MAINFRAME))

I tried to use CWnd.EnableWindow(0). The toolbar is disabled but not grayed.

IN mainframe.cpp

Add following entry in message map
      ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI_RANGE(ID_FILE_NEW,ID_APP_ABOUT, OnUpdateToolbar)

here ID_FILE_NEW and ID_APP_ABOUT is range for my toolbar (created by class wizard ) . If you have different id range subsitute them here

//add following to mainframe.cpp
void CMainFrame::OnUpdateToolbar(CCmdUI *pCmdUI)
{
    pCmdUI->Enable (FALSE);//<<=== here you can take variable /class member
                                          //set it true anywhere and your toolbar will be enable set it false to make
                                         // make toolbar disable
}

//add following to header file for mainframe class


      //{{AFX_MSG(CMainFrame)
      afx_msg int OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct);
            // NOTE - the ClassWizard will add and remove member functions here.
      afx_msg void OnUpdateToolbar(CCmdUI *pCmdUI);     //add this line<<=========
            //    DO NOT EDIT what you see in these blocks of generated code!
      //}}AFX_MSG
      DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()

good luck
