I have a query regarding CExtControlBar.

Can I use or create dockable or fixed controlbar using CExtControlBar in a Dialog based MFC application? If not then what I have to do to create controlbar in a dialog based app?

I want to create just a fixed controlbar not dockable control bar.

You can create an MFC or Prof-UIS control bar only in a frame window. You can create a very simple frame window (without any control bars, a menu bar and a status bar). Then convert your current dialog into a child dialog type. Create your dialog as a child of your frame window. Change the dialog’s control identifier to AFX_IDW_PANE_FIRST (i.e. invoke the dialog’s SetDlgCtrlID() method). Finally you cna create any control bars in your main frame window.
