    It looks like you are referring to a Splitter Bar.
    There is a demo in the Common Controls section of PB files:

    Kev,
    VB & MSC++ on visual studio use similar controls. The (MSDN sampler VC 4.0 & up) does as well.
    Also Ultraedit by Ian Mead uses a horizontal control similar to that in his editor.
    Possibly if you found out what classes these use you might be able to get the same effect.

    Edwin, no its not a CoolBar as a CoolBar is a Rebar.

    Borje, thanks for the info about the Shell API DLL's, I am satisified that no-one other than MFC users and Microsoft can use this 'control', as it is also in Microsoft Outlook and some MFC applications that i've used (Depends).

    I thinks its a good idea to close this topic now (unless anyone stumbles across some source code for the control, which would be most welcome )

    Regards,

    I think he means the dragable 'coolbar'.

    This bar has the tine left border to drag, control should be placed upon it.

    Check out the coolbar decl's in common controls inc.

    A quick search revealed that the word "Basebar" can be found in
    both SHDOCVW.DLL and SHELL32.DLL. Maybe it can have something to
    do with the SHAppBarMessage API? The plot thickens..

    Scott, no its not a rebar.

    Semen, I think you may be right the class could actually be contained within explorer.exe.

    Thanks for the replies anyway

    Kev,
    Could it be a rebar control perhaps?

    I'm very doubt, that this class is registrated by COMCTL32.
    Otherwise it will be possible to find word BaseBar inside this DLL. (I can't find)

    Semen, no its got nothing to do with appbars, I also searched all my MSDN cds (1999 version) with no results.

    Armed with Spy++ I checked explorer for the class name of the control, and it said "BaseBar". The control is basically a parent 'frame' which has 'panes' in each view.

    The BaseBar appears to be a Microsoft 'in house' class that no one else can use, which probably has something to do with the hidden COMCTL32 dependencies.

    I just thought it would be useful if we could access this control, but it appears that we can't.

    Guest started a topic BaseBar control

    BaseBar control

    Hi,
    Has anyone used the BaseBar control successfully? (its those quite cool moveable bars in explorer), I used depends.exe on explorer.exe and it appears to access 'hidden' API's in comctl32.dll, explorer.exe is not linked in any way to MFC, btw.

    Could this be a COM implemented control?

    Regards,
