I am using a CExtRibbonNodeGallery to populate icons from an item in Application menu. The gallery window is bigger than the section underneath it. If I use a scaling to set its size, I can obtain the correct size but the vertical scroll bar is only about half of that window. How can I retrieves the size of the window under it to set its size properly?

CExtRibbonNodeGallery *nodeGallery = new CExtRibbonNodeGallery(ID_OPEN_TEMPLATE, NULL, __ECTN_BIG_ACCENT_IN_MENU, _T("&Open") );
nodeGallery->CmdKeyTipSet( new CExtCustomizeCmdKeyTip( __EXT_MFC_SAFE_TCHAR( _T(’O’) ) ), false );
nodeGallery-> = g_PaintManager.GetPM()->UiScalingDo( 58*4, CExtPaintManager::__EUIST_Y );
nodeGallery-> = g_PaintManager.GetPM()->UiScalingDo( 58*4, CExtPaintManager::__EUIST_X );
nodeGallery->RibbonILE_RuleRemoveEntriesByILV( true, true, false );

Both the width of the scroll bar control and the width of ribbon gallery scroll buttons is equal to the value of ::GetSystemMetrics( SM_CXVSCROLL ). This value should be added to the measured size of the gallery and it should not be scaled. You can modify our RibbonBar sample and send it to us. We will check out what’s wrong.
