  1. How to create word style toolbar using MFC?

    Hello All

    In MS Word, by default several toolbars are visible. Typically, each
    toolbar has several buttons, combo boxes etc. However, there are only
    few of them visible. There is an arrow button (usually on right end of
    the tool bar) clicking which a dialog consisting of other (non-visible)
    buttons shows up. This dialog also contains "Add Or Remove Buttons"
    menu item. The end user can use these to customise his toolbar. How to
    achieve this feature using an MFC toolbar? Does any of CToolBar,
    CToolBarCtrl, CReBar or CReBarCtrl or any other class provide such
    feature?

    Any help is appreaciated. Thanks in advance.

    Best regards
    Amit Dedhia

    What you see in Office products is not a standard Win32 control. The
    best you can do is to use a CToolBar and add your own features to it.
    You can also look at 3rd party libraries which provide all these
    features(codejock, dundas etc). Some of the features are not that hard
    to implement. Also look at codeproject/codeguru for some samples.

    You can get almost the same look and feel with this library
    (www.codejock.com). You have to pay for it, but they even have the Office
    12 controls in the latest release.

    There are some other libraries that have similar functionality
    (www.theultimatetoolbox.com) (www.bcgsoft.com) and some others for which I
    don't have the URL memorized, but if you MSN Search you can find a couple of
    others.
