Usually, you do not create a CMFCColorBar object directly. Instead, the CMFCColorMenuButton Class (used in menus and toolbars) or the CMFCColorButton Class creates the CMFCColorBar object.

The CMFCColorBar class provides the following functionality:

  • Automatically adjusts the list of document colors.

  • Saves and restores its state, together with the document state.

  • Manages the "automatic" button.

  • Uses the CMFCColorPickerCtrl Class control to select a custom color.

  • Supports a "tear-off" state (if it is created by using the CMFCColorMenuButton Class).

To incorporate the CMFCColorBar functionality into your application:

  1. Create a regular menu button and assign it an ID, for example ID_CHAR_COLOR.

  2. In your frame window class, override the CFrameWndEx::OnShowPopupMenu method and replace the regular menu button with a CMFCColorMenuButton Class object (by calling CMFCToolBar::ReplaceButton).

  3. Set all the styles and enable or disable the features of the CMFCColorBar object during CMFCColorMenuButton Class creation. The CMFCColorMenuButton object dynamically creates the CMFCColorBar object after the framework calls the CreatePopupMenu method.

When the user clicks a color bar control button, the framework uses the ON_COMMAND macro to notify the parent of the color bar control. In the macro, the command ID parameter is the value that you assigned to the color bar control button in step 1 (ID_CHAR_COLOR in this example). For more information, see the CMFCColorMenuButton Class, CMFCColorButton Class, CMFCColorPickerCtrl Class, CFrameWndEx Class, and CMFCToolBar Class classes.

The following example demonstrates how to configure a color bar by using various methods in the CMFCColorBar class. The methods set the horizontal and vertical margins, enable the other button, create a color bar control window, and sets the currently selected color. This example is part of the New Controls sample.


	CMFCColorBar m_wndColorBar;


...


	// set the margins
	m_wndColorBar.SetHorzMargin(0);
	m_wndColorBar.SetVertMargin(0);
	// enable the display of a dialog box that 
	// lets the user select more colors
	m_wndColorBar.EnableOtherButton(_T("Other..."));
	// create a color bar control window
	m_wndColorBar.CreateControl(this, rectColorBar, IDC_COLORBAR, 5 /* columns */);
	// set the currently selected color
	m_wndColorBar.SetColor(RGB(255, 0, 0));
