This menubar control is based on the
CToolBarCtrl class rather than
CToolBar, so it never assumes that it has a parent window derived from
CFrameWnd. It lacks some features like docking or automatic tooltips, but it can be used with any window whose parent is derived from
CWnd. You must of course be using MFC.
CToolBarCtrl, I wrote a class named
CToolBarXP to process customdraw. If you don't need this feature, just modify the base class as
CToolBarCtrl, and remove the following line from the messagemap:
CToolBarXP includes a
LoadToolBar member function to load a toolbar resource. It may be useful to you, even if you don't care about menubars or customdraw.
CMenuXP is used as the menu class to implement ownerdraw.
CMenuXP is derived from
CMenu so it has all the features of
CMenu. If you don't need a ownerdraw menu, just use the
CMenu members to construct the menu.
The included sample is simple and far from powerful, but it is a good start I hope.
