    Getting rid of the toolbar options button

    The Visual Studio 2010 Wizard generated SDI/MDI with CWinAppEx has a Toolbar Options button that I wish to get rid of because I feel it unnecessarily complicates my interface. How can I get rid of this button so that the MainFrame toolbar is immutable?

    Open the toolbar in the resource editor and drag it off.

    Please see below..

    Open the toolbar in the resource editor and drag it off.
    It is not visible on the toolbar resource editor in the newer CWinAppEx configuration. There is nothing to 'drag off'.

    Mike,
    Could you describe the type of the application with details? I was trying to get this button but I failed to find the right configuration. Also, what version of VS you are using?

    Visual Studio 2010 .NET Framework 4.0+ , SVPK 1
    File->New Project->MFC Application
    Accept defaults except for:
    Application Type:
    Single document
    Project style: MFC standard
    Uncheck Enable visual style switching
    User Interface Features:
    Uncheck User-defined toolbars and images
    Uncheck Personalized menu behaviour

    Next->...-> Finish

    Those choices will generate an SDI app with the Toolbar Options Button.
    The application also uses CWinAppEx and CFrameWndEx

    Mike,
    I am
    not able to create application with Toolbar Options button. Are you using some of the 3rd party plug-in?

    I have tried both: your TestProj as well as following your description. I tried it in Windows XP SP3, 7 and 2003. None of the compiled projects shows this )(&^&^ button.

    Re: Getting rid of the toolbar options button

    You think maybe this line in mainfrm.cpp has something to do with it?

    m_wndToolBar.EnableCustomizeButton(TRUE, ID_VIEW_CUSTOMIZE, strCustomize);

    Commenting out the line doesnt change anything.
