In Prof-UIS, there is a CExtPanelControlBar class that has similar features to MFC's CDialogBar. CExtPanelControlBar implements a toolbar-like window, which owns only one child window and has a size that is determined by the size of this child window. In most cases the panel control bar is used as a dialog container.

In the FixedSizePanels sample application you can find that the m_wndPanelDialog property of CMainFrame, which is created in CMainFrame::OnCreate() is an instance of the CExtPanelControlBar class. The m_dlgForPanelDialog property of the main frame is a child dialog whose parent window is m_wndPanelDialog.
