I have an CExtMenuControlBar, and several comtrol-bars. The menu-bar occupies only half of the screen’s width, so I would like to dock control-bars to it’s right side.

However, whenever I try this, by dragging in the control-bar next to the menu-ber, the menu-bar jumps up or down...

Please help,

The menu bar is a kind of toolbar. Both a CExtMenuControlBar and a CExtToolControlBar bar can take up the entire row (like a classic menu bar) or part of it (like a classis toolbar). You can use a custom CExtMenuControlBar-derived class implementing the CExtMenuControlBar::_GetFullRowMode() virtual method that returns false . Such a menu bar will behave like a toolbar and can be docked in the same row/column with other toolbars.
