I would like to now if there is a way to remove the caption of CExtControlBar when docked, or at least place this caption vertically.

Thank you in advance
Best Regards

You can create a control bar without the CBRS_GRIPPER style or remove this style from the control bar that has already been created. As a result, the caption of the floating mini frame and the caption of the docked control bar will be gone. This is the same as overriding the CExtControlBar::IsBarWithGripper() virtual method and returning false from it.

You can also set the CExtControlBar::m_bGripperStaticallyAtTop property to false for the control bar’s window to make the caption right-oriented when it is docked in a horizontal row.
