How to add a combobox in the caption of CExtControlBar ?

Technical Support Dec 9, 2009 - 1:28 PM

The caption of the CExtControlBar window is part of its non-client area. It’s not possible to create any window inside non-client area of other window. The classic approach is to create some toolbar near the caption of resizable bar and insert combo box into it. You can find a lot of examples of such design in Visual Studio .NET / 2005 / 2008 / 2010, in the <span class="newgreen">ProfStudio</spa> and <span class="newgreen">GLViews</spa> sample applications provided with Prof-UIS.
