saving location of CToolbarCtrl

Hi,

I have a toolbar ctrl. I'd like to save its position on the toolbar (or if the user decided to float it, it's position in space) to file or registry so I can restore its position next time the user starts up the application.

Do SaveState() and RestoreState() do that, or do I have to use GetWindowRect() / SetWindowRect() for that?

thanks

In your CMainFrame class, in the OnCreate, right before the return, do this,

int CMainFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
....
                     LoadBarState(_T("DockState")) ;
      return 0;
}

and to save, map the OnClose
//
void CMainFrame::OnClose()
{
      SaveBarState(_T("DockState")) ;
      __super::OnClose() ;
}
