How to Set Width of Control Bar/Toolbar in MFC?

Hi, I have a MDI app that has floating dockable control bars which contain dialogs as views.  The problem is that every time I start up the app the control bars (views) are set to a certain width not specified by me.  Are there any functions I can use to set the width of a toolbar/control bar (maybe SetBarStyle?) or start up the control bar (view) based on the last setting (last time the app exited)?

Thanks for any help.

Check out MFC sample CTRLBARS. It keeps last control bars state in the Registry and restores it when the program starts.
