Hi All,

 

I am also very interested in using the Rebar however in the example Jez has used below, the window control uses:

 

-popstyle  => WS_CAPTION | WS_SIZEBOX,
-pushstyle => WS_CHILD,

 

 If I try to implement the same methods I get an error message informing me that I can’t use BAREWORDS.

 

If I change the WS_ constants to their numerical equivalent it appears to accept the numeric values, however

The window won’t accept addition or withdrawal of some styles.

 

Why will it accept WS_ in one instance and only the numerical equivalent in another?

 

Where does –pushstyle fit in with –addstyle?

 

Is there another equivalent to –popstyle?

 

Cheers

 

Chris

Hi,

 

For a while I've been playing with rebars, with the goal of ending up with something like the attached image...

 

With the recent (excellent) additional methods/styles to the toolbar, I went back to the rebar, and tried to add a tool bar to it. I couldn't get the toolbar to work when it is used by itself - since it requires a parent on creation - but I was able to add a toolbar to a child window, which in turn can be added to the rebar. This is not ideal, but does work. See the example below (I have used some of the new toolbar styles).

 

Ideally you should be able to add a toolbar, and for that matter a menu directly to a rebar control (not via a child window).  I've done some searching and came up with the these examples:

 

http://www.codeguru.com/toolbar/iebars.html  (the attached image was taken from this site, included the C code required to create this example).

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vccore98/html/_core_rebar_controls_and_bands.asp

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vcmfc98/html/_mfc_ctoolbar.3a3a.createex.asp

 

Are these "easy" changes/additions?

 

Cheers,

 

jez.
