When I use an MFC CDialogBar, the buttons in the dialog hosted by the CDialogBar result in commands sent to the frame/view etc...

This no longer works if you use CExtResizableDialog & CExtControlPanelBar, as suggested in the help.

What is the prescribed way to get this to work?

I looked in the FixedSizePanels sample, and it looks the buttons in the dialog bars use "CDynamicButton", which overrides CExtButton::_OnClick (which is undocumented), and sends a WM_COMMAND message with the buttons ctrlid. Is that the suggested way?

You should use a CExtPanelControlBar window with a dialog window inside. In your dialog class, you can handle all the events from windows inside the dialog.
