I have a SDI with a couple of ControlBars. Is it possible to prevent the controlbars from getting minimized when the main windows is minimized if the controlbars has been dragged outside the main window?

You are asking about if it is possible not to hide a floating mini frame window with control bar(s) when the main window gets minimized. No, this is not supported. This a classic behavior of control bars which is provided by MFC. Besides the window object has the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW extended window style. Alternatively you could switch to using multiple top level windows/frames with the desktop being the parent window. This is the essential condition to make several floating windows being minimized independently.
