Is it possible to dock a CExtControlbar to the clientarea of a MDI Application. I don’t want to dock this bar to MDIChildFrame Window but it should always be the innerbar above the maximized mdi Clientwindow also when the other bars are moved.

Is there a way to do something like that ?

Best regards

There is a CExtDynamicControlBar that implements a dynamic control bar whose contents can be displayed in the MDI client area. Is it what you are looking for? If not, could you send a screenshot to us?

I want to du the following. The MDI Childwindows should alwasy be maximized. I have create a custom Tabcontrol and want to dock ever in the inner part of the MDI Client Area. The bar should not be above the mdichild because no part of the maximized mdi child should be hidden.

What I want to know. How can I do custom MDI Tabs without using the ones from Prof-IUS. I have developed my own one wich perfectly fit my needs and have some specialized features for 3D Level Editors. So please tell me.

How can I do that ?

We can suggest that you consider using the CExtTMWI template class, which extends the functionality of any Prof-UIS tab control window and was designed to manage MDI child windows. The CExtTMWI decorated tab control window automatically docks to any inner part of the MDI window depending on its orientation specified with __ETWS_ORIENT_XXX flags.

Another solution could be adding your specialized features to the Prof-UIS tab window but in this case we need to take a look at your tab control.
