Explorer Bar/Collapsible Group Bar Control

I am looking for a control that resembles:

This is written in C#. There is a Win32/MFC alternative:

Do the experts out there know of any other alternative?

Also, it will be ideal if such a control can be added to dialog based
applications and need not conform to a MDI/SDI architecture.

Hi Effiniti,

>Do the experts out there know of any other alternative?
>Also, it will be ideal if such a control can be added to dialog based
>applications and need not conform to a MDI/SDI architecture.

Have you tried the TaskPaneXP, which is an ActiveX control that emulates 
the Windows XP style Explorer Bars. I think it could be easily used in your 
MFC dialog based applications:
XP Style ExplorerBar ActiveX Control   

By the way, I suggest you refer to the following web page, form where you 
can find many well-known Windows XP style Explorer bar controls:
ExplorerBar Controls & Components

Wish this helps!

services.msc and Internet Explorer shutdown immediately
I have a server running Windows Server 2003. When I try to open Internet Explorer 8, it acts like it's going to open, but then quickly just shuts down completely. The event viewer just shows iexplore.exe as the faulting application event ID 1000, but no real specific information.

Verticle Scroll Bar Not Displayed as Expected
I have a form with a text box. The text box properties are set to allow verticle scroll bars. The text box margins (L/R/T/B) are set to .02". This is to allow reading the entries easier. This is causing the scroll bar for the text box NOT to show, but when I set the margins to 0", the scroll bar appears. Is this a known bug? Any work-arounds? I've never had to use scroll bars, but I'm pretty sure I've seen here or elsewhere that the scrollbar will only appear if the data in the control is large enough to require the scrollbar in order to be viewed.

Is there a way to go through all the controls on a MFC dialog?
hi, I need to get through all the controls in a MFC dialog without knowing their ID at design time. That mean that the program must get the id and then get the control. Is there a better solution?

Release VS2005 & XP Common Controls Manifest
Hi, I have a couple questions. 1) When upgrading an MFC project from VS2003 to VS2005, the manifest options in the upgraded project settings cause Windows not to recognise the embedded manifest (as a resource) and no hence no XP controls. 2) I thought that to fix this I would create a VS2005 MFC application and look at how it sets up the manifest. Setting up a single dialog based MFC App, (with "Common Control Manifest" ticked under Advanced) I assume should create an MFC app that includes the necessary manifest and project settings - however the resulting app does not inc...

How do I make a vertical floating bar chart?

In other words, I want the range of the floating bars to be displayed on the y-axis rather than the x-axis. Can anyone help me?

.Net generated MDI apps not starting in Explorer
I have ported my MFC based apps from VS6/MFC6 to .Net/MFC7 and found that I can no longer start MDI type apps by double clicking their associated documents in the Windows Explorer, whereas SDI apps open up fine as before. The same even goes for a simple MDI skeleton app created with the AppWizard in .Net. The documents are being properly registered in the registry, but it seems as if the MDI apps are not being forwarded the clicked document file name. Consequently the MDI frame window does not show, though the app is listed as running in the processes view. Any ideas what could be mis...

add individual data points to a bar chart of averages
I have groups of data points in categories. I can easily calculate the average in each category and show these as a bar chart, but is it possible to show the individual data pioints in each category as well?

Outlook 2007: Contact "Groups"
I am getting a bit confused with contact groups and folders. I created a new group and then created a main folder within that group. I then imported some contacts into that main folder from Excel.

How do I get them back in the navigation pane? Also, I see that five of the folders are indented from the "main folder". Why is that? I wanted multiple folders at the same level. ...
