I have a control bar and I want it to be docked only at left.
g_eResizablePanelDockingType is set to __RESIZABLE_DOCKING_TYPE_STUDIO_2008_VISTA:

CExtControlBar::g_eResizablePanelDockingType = CExtControlBar::__RESIZABLE_DOCKING_TYPE_STUDIO_2008_VISTA;

The control is created as shown below:

if(!m_wndKayitBar.Create(NULL, this, ID_VIEW_CONTROLBAR,
return -1;

And EnableDocking() parameter is set to CBRS_ALIGN_LEFT:


With these settings, I can dock the bar at any position. It doesn’t prevent me to dock at top, bottom or right. Am I skipping something?

I tested this with your sample projects and if  CExtControlBar::g_eResizablePanelDockingType is different than CExtControlBar::__RESIZABLE_DOCKING_TYPE_STUDIO_2003, I can align the control to any position although the EnableDocking parameter is set to CBRS_ALIGN_LEFT.

So, what do you suggest?

We suspect the code loading the state of control bars has loaded it as CBRS_ALIGN_ANY.
