I am trying to skip  the built-in context menu shown on right click on dynamic control bar. I browse the forums and found the solution, that should suppress even all menus :

afx_msg LRESULT OnConstructPopupMenuCB( WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam );





LRESULT CMainFrame::OnConstructPopupMenuCB(

    WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam )




      return (!0);


But it doesn’t work in my program neither in the sample SDI_DynamicBars. Maybe I am missing something. 

Thank you!

This works for simple control bars (CExtControlBar). In the case of dynamic control bars (CExtControlBar), you should implement the CExtDynamicControlBar::OnInitDbsMenu() virtual method that modifies or suppresses the dynamic control bar’s menu. If you set the CExtControlBar::m_bAppearInDockSiteControlBarPopupMenu property for any control bar to false, all built-in context menus displayed by Prof-UIS over frame window areas will not contain the menu item associated with this control bar. You can set the CExtControlBar::m_bAppearInDockSiteControlBarPopupMenu property of all the control bar in your project to false and built-in Prof-UIS context menus will not appear because they contain no menu items.
