You can dynamically create and remove both of them, but we think this is not a good solution. We would recommend you create both UI parts and show only toolbars or only ribbon. The ribbon can be integrated/de-integrated with the frame caption automatically depending on its visibility. So, you should only show/hide all toolbars or ribbon using the CFrameWnd::ShowControlBar() API.

Hi ProfUIS.

I want to implement the dinamically UI changing from the old (using standart tool bars - CExtToolControlBar ) to the new ( using the improvments UI of the Ribbons ).
I have some questions for you:

1. Can I dynamically recreate a toolbar control(with customization of course)? If no:
1.1. Can i dynamically show/hide the toolbar control and change the type of the window for the ribbon UI?
2. Can I dynamically recreate a ribbon control? If no:
1.2 Can I dynamically show/hide Ribbon and change the style window for the toolbar UI.

Please, answer for this questions.
This is very important for me!
