    Floating toolbar

    Hi.

    Could someone point me to some docs on how to make a toolbar floating / dockable?

    Searching MSDN only seem to pull up info for MFC, and I'm using Win32 API.

    At the moment, my toolbars (created with CreateWindowEx) are all fixed to the top of the parent window.

    Thanks.

    You have to code the framework from scratch. There is no win32 docking API. There is an article here which provides sample code on how to create a dockable toolbar.
