In my application I have created 2 controlbars. I have used below code to enable autohide feature for controlbar.
But I want autohide feature to be enabled for only one controlbar. And other controlbar should have only close button. How to achieve this thing.

        if( ! CExtControlBar::FrameInjectAutoHideAreas(this) )
            ASSERT( FALSE );
            return -1;
    #endif // (!defined __EXT_MFC_NO_TAB_CONTROLBARS)

Try this code:

class CMyNonAutoHideAbleControlBar : public CExtControlBar
      virtual void OnNcAreaButtonsReinitialize()
            ASSERT_VALID( this );
            INT nCountOfNcButtons = NcButtons_GetCount();
            if( nCountOfNcButtons > 0 )
            NcButtons_Add( new CExtBarNcAreaButtonClose(this) );
            NcButtons_Add( new CExtBarNcAreaButtonMenu(this) );
      virtual bool _CanDockToTabbedContainers(
            CExtControlBar * pDestBar
            ) const
            ASSERT_VALID( this );
            return false;
The CMyNonAutoHideAbleControlBar bar will have no pin button in its caption when it is docked inside the main frame window and, as a result, you will not be able to auto-hide it. Additionally, you will not be able to dock both bars into the same tabbed group. This is needed so that both bars cannot be switched into the auto-hidden state at once.
