Hi,

I am trying to create resizable CDialogBar which is in docked state. I managed to resize it while it is floating, but i don't want that bar to be floating, only docked and I want to resize it.

Thanks already

I inherited a class from CSizingControlBar, but I can't just throw my dialog in it. Also I cannot resize docked bar which was intended.

Hi talgraf1,

to change the size of a CDialogBar (which is calculated from it's underlaying dialog-resource) you can override CControlBar::CalcFixedLayout in your CDialogBar derived class. This sample i.e. just adds 150 pixels to the width of the dialog-bar:

/*virtual*/ CSize
CTestDlgBar::CalcFixedLayout( BOOL bStretch, BOOL bHorz )
{
      CSize s = CDialogBar::CalcFixedLayout( bStretch, bHorz );

      s.cx += 150;

      return s;
}

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO

Hi talgraf1,

did you have any problems with the solution I gave? Didn't it work for you? Or is there any other reason why you accepted it with a 'B'-grade?

Hi Zoppo

I used your solution and noticed that dialogbar was not that I needed -> ran to a dead end. But thanks anyway.
