Hi all, I am creating a MDI(multi-document interface) and everything is going peachy except I've hit a snag trying to add a toolbar to the frame window. The toolbar works fine as long as I don't draw the client window, but when I do draw the client, the toolbar is non-interfacable(just made up a new word). It is still drawn, but it gives no indication of sending or recieving messages. And if I add WS_CLIPSIBLINGS to it's window style attributes, try to update it using UpdateWindow(), or create a MDI child window, the toolbar dissapears. I am creating the toolbar as a child of the frame window using CreateWindowEx. Should I be using a different window as the parent of the toolbar, or is there something special you have to do to enable toolbars with MDI windows? I have been all over MSDN and Google searching for explanations, but non seem forthcoming. Edit: I am using the Window API, not MFC. Thanks for any help you offer, -Levi [Edited by - levjs on January 24, 2009 2:34:08 PM]
