Hi,

I have an MDI application. Is it possible to make a toolbar inside one of my child frames? I don't mean a toolbar as part of MainFrm, but actually embedded inside the child frame at the top. I know this may contradict the MDI framework, just wondering if it's possible. Any examples?

Thanks

Hi DJ AM,

I would just create a normal toolbar as a child of your View Window. So when your view is created ON_WM_CREATE(), just create a child CToolBar of your view.

Here are a lot of tutorials on createing toolbars: http://www.codeproject.com/docking/#Toolbars

Good luck,
Brandon

I think bdunz19 means as a child of the ChidFrame not the view.

(Have a look at the code to create the toolbar that is part of the main frame of your app).

Yes Andy is right. If it was part of the view, it would work but it would be under the frame border. My mistake, you want it to be a child of your Child Frame so that it will be above your view edge.

Thanks Andy
